Karuizawa 1999-2000 Cask Strength Fugaku Sanjurokkei 1st Edition

Karuizawa 1999-2000 Cask Strength Fugaku Sanjurokkei 1st Edition
The first edition was initially presented in the 2015 WhiskyLuxe.

“Fugaku Sanjurokkei” is a series of landscape prints by the prominent Japanese ukiyo-e (pictures of the floating world) artist Hokusai. The term literally means “36 Views of Mount Fuji”, for which Hokusai depicts Mount Fuji from different locations in various weather conditions. Karuizawa has adopted the theme and introduced Fugaku Sanjurokkei Series, exhibiting one of the 36 striking prints in each release. These releases are drawn from casks of 1999 and 2000 vintages and bottled at cask strength.

Karuizawa distillery sat in the foothills of Mount Asama, where the chilly climate provided an excellent condition for whisky making. Though small, this distillery was known for producing whisky of the finest quality. The distillery was closed in 2011 and hence has made the Karuizawa whiskies extremely rare and valuable.
