Karuizawa 1983 Cocktail Series - Cask #8597

Another Karuizawa from the Cocktail Series for LMDW. This time a 1983 distilled and bottled in 2012 with 62.1% vol.

  • Nose: Sherry'ish (yes I know it's a Bourbon cask), sandalwood, rather Japanese, juicy, leather, tobacco, dried cherries and berries, very fruity! and some smoke
  • Mouth: Oak, a bit smoke, mild and sweet, a tad of underlying tannins, quite oily
  • Finish: Sherry, sandalwood, smoky, nutty, yam stark(?)
Comment: A fantastic nose! Mouth and finish fall a bit short compared to the nose but are excellent nonetheless.

90 points
