Kawasaki 1982 - Whisky Live Tokyo 2011 - Cask 7414

A barely known defunct distillery. And it's a single grain to boot. And a sherry cask!So here we go. This Kawasaki was bottle for The Whisky Live Tokyo 2011 Expo.1982-2011 Sherry Butt Cask Nr. 7414 with a MASSIVE 65.5% vol. alcohol.

  • Nose: Big sherry (PX'ish), acrylic paint solvent, oak, soy sauce, oranges
  • Mouth: Sherry, sandalwood, oak, grain whisky, very mellow with water
  • Finish: Oak, sandalwood, sherry, glue, red fruits/strawberries

Comment: Lots of very nice (typical Japanese style) oak and some glue/solvent notes that might not be to everyones liking. Water doesn't change it significantly, just makes it mellower. Not the most complex whisky but very round and super drinkable. Yum!
