Karuizawa 1999 - 2011 LMdW #867

An eleven or twelve year old Karuizawa matured in a sherry butt. Amazingly dark for that age and with a solid 58.9% vol. Bottled for La Maison du Whisky in France.

  • Nose: Thick heavy dry sherry, some oak, dry red wine that went a bit sour, soy sauce, tomato
  • Mouth: Lots of sherry, some oak
  • Finish: Sherry, a lot of tropical fruit, very fruity in general, moderately oily, some very light bitterness and some oak
Comment: Interesting nose and fantastically fruity finish.
