Karuizawa Geisha 33 YO & 35 YO



The emerald-green colour of these labels symbolises youth, vitality and eternity, while the sakura – cherry blossom – signifies love and the feminine mystique. The striking colour and ever-present blossom represent the beauty and skill of the geishas that continues to this day, as well as the enduring popularity that Karuizawa whiskies have found even after the distillery’s closure. 33 years in a sherry cask has augmented the classic Karuizawa character with notes of raisin, mint and plum. This enchanting and extremely rare whisky was bottled by Elixir Distillers exclusively for The Whisky Exchange. Karuizawa’s whiskies are legendary. Not only are they of sublime quality, but the distillery’s closure almost 20 years ago means that they are rarer than emeralds. This exclusive single-cask bottling of 35-year-old single malt, created by Elixir Distillers, layers vanilla and spiced butter around the Karuizawa core. The distinctive emerald labels combine beautiful Japanese art forms with complex hot foil and intricate embossing embellishments, giving the bottles a sculptured finish. They were designed by The Whisky Exchange’s creative director Raj Chavda, who is also a fellow of the Royal Society of Art.
