Another single cask release from the Karuizawa distillery, this time very old and of quite incredible strength. An epic dram.

Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes from whisky-pages.com (Gavin D. Smith)
A rich, expansive nose of Sherry – deliciously fruity, with orange marmalade, molasses and a background earthy note. With time, the fruits soften to orange fondant creams.

Huge on the palate, with drying Sherry, slightly burnt raisins and liquorice. Water teases out more smoky, stewed fruit characteristics.

The finish is very long, with a persistent note of spicy oranges. A surprising, and very welcome, lack of negative oak impact after so long in the cask. A superb, robust veteran that has matured magnificently.
