The second Karuizawa bottling from the Tokyo International BarShow. Bottled at 61.6% and like the sister bottling a vatting of two 1999 & 2000 distilled sherry butt casks.
- Nose: Raisins, Sherry, Ume-ex (salty concentrated ume plum), slightly harsh, with water some glue and solvent
- Mouth: Sherry, oak, herbal
- Finish: Red fruits, some slight tannins, juicy oak, quite nice!
Comments: Rather good finish, nose and mouth are good too but nothing stellar plus the slightly noticable harshness is a negative.
