Karuizawa-1967-#6426-TWE
Bottled 24th August 2009 for The Whisky Exchange, UK. Distilled at Karuizawa Distillery.
One of 195 bottles. Cask no. 6426, Sherry Butt. In original carton. Good label. -

"Nose: this oldie is much more 'tertiary' than the 1972 when neat, much more on old leather, precious wood, dry sherry, pipe tobacco, Cuban cigars (in truth, a whole humidor), cedar wood, cough syrup, plum jam, very old Armagnac, a little tar, even whiffs of engine oil... What an amazing complexity! With water: it's got everything an old sherried wonder can have. Spectacular whiffs of aniseed and dill, a little more beefy notes, absolutely no sulphur whatsoever. Enough said." (5 stars Whiskyfun)

700ml. Single Malt., 58.4% volume.
