Karuizawa-1978-#8383
Distilled December 1978, Bottled July 2014. Distilled at Karuizawa Distillery
Bin-soiled label. "...Pretty often, these old ex-bourbon Karuizawas do display sherried notes, which is funny. With water: cough syrup, just like in the 1979, but this time the whole got even more medicinal. Some kind of secret concoction that would cure just anything! The croissants are back as well. Mouth (neat): as creamy as honey, rather spicy, marmalady and rather tannic. Ginger, cinnamon mints, cumin, strong tea...But once again, the citrusy side saves it. Even better, that comes with perfect earthy tones." (5 stars-Whiskyfun)

「當然它鼎鼎有名,極為濃郁,充滞橡木油與厚重的香料氣息,加上很多來自最優質瑞士朱古力廠家的黑朱古力風味。不過,過份抱着碰運氣的心......以水伴飲,少雪莉味,更清新,更濃果味,有意外的君度酒與薑酒的味道,些微冧酒、檸檬皮和黑胡椒的味道。很多時候,口感會較柔滑、比清水更豐滿。提醒你,其中甚至有點蜜糖味!收結悠長、較甜。餘韻有點酸辣醬、薑糖及泥媒味。」(Whiskyfun:五星)
