Karuizawa - 1999 - Memories Of - #879

A 13 years old sherry cask matured Karuizawa from the Memories of Karuizawa series. Bottled at 62.9% vol.

  • Nose: Dry Oloroso(?) sherry, rum raisins, assorted woods, sandalwood
  • Mouth: Very oily, woods, earthy with leaves like in a dry forrest
  • Finish: Red berries, a bit smokey, some light tannins, juicy tobacco, long and warm
Comment: One of the if not the best young Karuizawa I tasted so far. Very balanced with plenty of sherry and depth.

90 points
