- 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.
