Old and rare discontinued bottle, 720ml, 40%

A rare blended Karuizawa

Karuizawa is the gold standard of rare Japanese whisky. The distillery closed its doors in 2011, although it had not been producing whisky for over a decade. This particular Black Ocean Whisky is quality blended whisky from karuizawa and yamanashi distilleries. It is also quite rare, meaning that you won’t find it just anywhere! This is truly a collector’s item.

Back when Ocean used to be one of the "big three" whisky producers in Japan, they owned the Karuizawa distillery, whose spirit would have been a constituent of this blend.

Being a silent distillery, everything from Karuizawa is a rare collector’s whisky and the Karuizawa Ocean Whisky is no exception. It is said that the mist and wind near the now closed distillery furnish the best surroundings for whisky making, and if you have ever tried Karuizawa, we are sure that you would agree. Early releases were mostly appearing under the Sanraku Ocean brand name like this one. Enjoy the last of Karuizawa!

Discontinued bottle from closed distillery.

We will do our effort to minimize all collateral costs, and that you receive your bottles safe and fast.

    Response by seller
    Buyer is malicious and this feedback isn't correct. Buyer was already explained that bottle was returned due to changed regulation of japan post regarding alcohol content. It was unpredictable and out of my influence. Of course that catawiki is informed and cancellation and refunding process started with help of catawiki team. I even did great effort to try to find another solution for sending bottles (and buyer was informed also), so really don't undestand this negative feedback.
  • The seller never provided proof of the item being shipped. they said they shipped it and it was returned to them and that they would ship again...nothing ever happened. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SELLER.
