Karuizawa 12yo 2000 'Brilliant Sherry' for Isetan Cask #199

This Karuizawa was bottled for the Isetan warehouse chain. From my understanding there are a few different cask numbers of this one around. The notes here are for cask 199 with 60.2% vol.

  • Nose: Dry, slightly hot, white wine / Riesling, apple fruit, with water a tad glue
  • Mouth: Fruity, apple, fino sherry
  • Finish: Fruity, medium long, fino sherry, a bit grassy
Comment: Not an overly typical Krauizawa, the nose is a bit boring, mouth and finish are sharp and defined.
