Karuizawa - 1984 - 28yo - #3692

This classic Karuizawa was distilled in 1984, aged in a Sherry Butt and bottled in 2012  by Number One Drinks. Some solid 61.6% vol.

  • Nose: Raisins, all kind of woods, sherry, warm, hot dusty streets after a short rain-shower (yeah, that's a bit vague...), oily, some slight matchsticks and earthy
  • Mouth: Warm, very oily, sherry, oak, creamy, very round mouth feeling
  • Finish: Sandalwood, oak, smooth sherry with oak, oily, red fruits, long and warm
Comment: Very good classic sherry heavy Karuizawa. Balanced and good harmony.

90 points
