Lot Details
Karuizawa-1986-#7387
Bottled 12th Feb 2008. Distilled at Karuizawa Distillery
Cask number 7387. In original carton. Good label. Colour: amber. Nose: once again, it's hot whisky but the notes of old walnut liqueur, brown coal and tarry rope are superb. When I first nosed this one (blind) I thought it was an old Hakushu. With water: superb. Same profile, with a little more mint and sandalwood. The one that's probably the most 'Japanese' in style. Mouth (neat): sweet, rounder and better integrated than the youngsters. Everything is big but everything is mellower. Vanilla, ginger, fruit spirit and orange marmalade. With water: absolutely excellent. Peat, salt, spices, liquorice and gentian. Finish: long, more vegetal now, with notes of lemon and pepper. (5 star -Whiskyfun)
700ml. Single Malt, 60.7% volume
