Karuizawa 1981 Cask No. 6207

This Karuizawa was distilled in 1981 and bottled in 2011 for LMDW.
Bottled at cask strength with 58.3% vol. and as expected this was matured in a sherry cask.

  • Nose: Oloroso sherry, matches, sour plums, sandalwood, dry leather, water brings out more woods
  • Mouth: Oriental spices, freshly baked cookies, oak, malt, with water mild tannins
  • Finish: Sherry, pepper, smoke, oak, cedarwood, dry, long and warming, dry tobacco, at the very end cinnamon with cedarwood
Comment: Excellent nose, mouth and finish can't keep up there. But still very good.

89 points
