Karuizawa 1999 & 2000 Tokyo Int. BarShow #2565

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.

85 points
