Karuizawa 1970 - 42yo - Cask #6177

This sherry butt Karuizawa was bottled in 2012 by Number One drinks with 64.3% vol. cask strength.

  • Nose: Sherry, sweet Oloroso, raisins, plums, sweet oak, a bit of a new leather bag and some cigars, dried cherries, slightly smokey, with water some plastic model glue in a positive sense
  • Mouth: Sherry, warm and mild with spices, oaky but well integrated, some lingering fresh red fruits
  • Finish: Warm and long, berries, very fruity, oak and sherry

Comment: Very excellent Karuizawa, big fantastic nose, oak and fantastic fruit. Fairly accessible compared to some other Karuizawas but none the less one of the best I tasted so far.
