Karuizawa 36 Views of Mount Fuji 18th Release


The distillery was tiny and the aim was traditional, small-scale production to create quality whiskies. Karuizawa used 100% Golden Promise barley, wooden washbacks, small stills and sherry casks sourced from Spain. Karuizawa’s whiskies are perhaps the closest you’ll find to the Scottish malt style in Japan but they still had their own unique character. The water was filtered through lava and the distillery also experienced very hot summers and extremely cold winters which resulted in a different maturation profile. Kuon-ji is the head of Nichiren Buddhism Temple located in Yamanashi. Visitors will pass by the Fuji River on their way to the temple, where they will see the beautiful scenery of Mt. Fuji far across the river.
