Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Tim F

Nose: A very appealing combination of apple blossom, honey and wood glue, develops polished oak, hints of pine sap and vanilla.  Fantastic.

Palate:  Medium-weight, but pretty intense flavours.  The sweet vanilla'd oak is the prominent characteristic here, with the apple pie, glue and honeysuckle in the background.

Finish: Sweet with a hint of oakspice.  Probably the gentlest Karuizawa finish I've had.

Comment: Fascinating to taste a spirit so associated with full strength sherry casks at a more normal strength from a bourbon cask.
