What is being billed as the world’s most expensive whisky tasting will be held in London in October this year? The tasting is part of The Whisky Show 2015, with tickets priced at £6,000 per piece. Each of the 45 tickets allows you to try four Karuizawa expressions which are no longer available by retail. That’s include
– Karuizawa 1981 (sherry cask #6056)
– Karuizawa 29 Year Old (bourbon cask #8897)
– Karuizawa 30 Year Old (sherry cask #5347)
– Karuizawa 1970 (sherry cask #6177)
On top of this, all participants will receive their own bottle of the Karuizawa 1983 cask #3557 ‘Nepal Appeal’, a special release of only 50 bottles. Two of the remaining bottles will be auctioned on Whisky.auction and Bonhams Hong Kong.
Organisers hope the tasting will sell out, raising more than € 380.000 for five charities that are working to help victims of the earthquake – Community Action Nepal, Help Nepal Network, Maiti Nepal, The Nepal Trust and SWAT.
The Whisky Show is at Old Billingsgate in London on October 3 and 4. There are 45 tickets available, which will be allocated at random via a ballot. You can register your interest online.
