Karuizawa 2000 - Tokyo Intl. Bar Show - Cask# 7603

This sherry butt aged Karuizawa was bottled for the Tokyo International Bar Show in 2013. Bottled at 62.4% vol.

  • Nose: Subdued, some sherry, something reminiscent of plywood, really opens up with water which results in some minty pinewood and pine needles notes
  • Mouth: Some light bitterness with sherry and some sweetness, pepper, pine needles again
  • Finish: Medium long, warm and typical sherry, slightly bitter
Comment: Not that balanced, has some high points here and there like the nose with water.

84 points
