16 Year Old Memories of Karuizawa Cask 3684

Karuizawa, 16 Year Old Memories of Karuizawa Cask 3684

RRP £2,500

This expression was distilled in 1996, four years before the distillery was mothballed, and is one of the younger releases from the distillery.

Nose: Disappointingly characterless at first. The high alcohol level masks anything going on. But with time green fruits and some sherried fruits make an appearance. With water there are hints of baked apple, traces of melon, and stewed plums.
Palate: Rich and full, with stewed fruit compote, oranges, blackcurrant jam, and sharp tannins and spices.
Finish: Long, rich and full – the fruit lingers, but there is chill spice in the mix too.
