Cask 7924

Karuizawa, Cask 7924

RRP £4,030

This was distilled in 1981 and bottled in 2011 at 30 years old

Nose: Not as faultless and stylish as some other expressions, with the nose flirting with sulphury spent match notes which can spoil sherried whiskies. With water this recedes. Tangy orange, charred oak and dates come to the fore.
Palate: Plum and prune juice, savoury tangerine, chocolate and some pleasant liquorice notes. It’s quite a difficult ride this one, with damp leaves and earthy forest floor notes and some charred notes. It’s a lot better with water but it’s
Finish: Quite long, but tannins make it a dry and sour experience, and the pleasant fruity notes struggle to shine through.
