This was an exciting development - our first ever bourbon-matured Karuizawa! It was from the 1982 vintage and was bottled at 46% with our Koi label design, the first whisky in that series. A huge hit at the 2012 TWE Whisky Show.Tasting Notes (1)
First Fill Bourbon
Tasting Notes by Tim F
A very appealing combination of apple blossom, honey and wood glue, develops polished oak, hints of pine sap and vanilla. Fantastic.
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.
Sweet with a hint of oakspice. Probably the gentlest Karuizawa finish I've had.
Fascinating to taste a spirit so associated with full strength sherry casks at a more normal strength from a bourbon cask.
