Karuizawa 1984 Cocktail Series - Cask #7975

This in 1984 distilled and in 2012 bottled Karuizawa is part of the "Cocktail Series" for LMDW in France. Aged in a sherry cask and bottled at a solid 59.3% vol cask strength.

  • Nose: Sherry, raisins, oak, tobacco, sandalwood, dried cherries, a bit pine cones
  • Mouth: Dry, sweet oak, Oloroso sherry (not overly dominant)
  • Finish: Warm, juicy oak, all kinds of wood, sherry, relatively long, a hint of tannins
Comment: Excellent well balanced Karuizawa without too much sherry influence but excellent oak influences.

90 points
