35 Year Old Cask 4376

Karuizawa, 35 Year Old Cask 4376

RRP £14,200

Distilled in 1980 and bottled in 2015 for Hong Kong’s Harbour City, this is exceptionally hard to find, being one of only 212 bottles released. It comes up at auction from time to time, but expect to pay at least 9000 Euros, $10,000 US

Nose: Once water is added this stately old chap reveals the perfect example of a sherried nose, with red and black berries, some citrus notes, treacle, plums.
Palate: Rich, tangy and mouth coating fruit compote with, fir forest, tannins, chili spice. It evolves with pecan and hazel nut, strawberry flan with vanilla custard and Cadbury’s fruit and nut bar.
Finish: Long, complex and very more-ish, with a nice balance between fruit, oak, and spice.
