Karuizawa 1981 Cocktail Series - Cask #162

And finally the 1981 bottling of the LMDW cocktail series. Aged in a sherry butt and bottled at 55.8 percent in 2012.

  • Nose: Sherry, red berries, sandalwood, juicy, leather, cherries, with water some malt and more fruits
  • Mouth: Smokey, Oloroso sherry, oak, some tannins
  • Finish: Warm, long'ish, sherry, smoke,oak, some tannins, sweet sherry with fruits, sandalwood and incense
Comment: A classic and excellent Karuizawa althou I feel it lacks a bit of the punch and intensity some other Karuizawas bring to the table.
