Karuizawa, Cask 7975, Cocktail series 28 Year Old

RRP £5,500

A single sherry butt distilled in 1984 and bottled in 2012 specially for La Maison du Whisky

Nose: Cherry, strawberry, orange, liquorice and distinctive rancio menthol notes. Rich, surprisngly fresh, very welcoming
Palate: An intense and mouth coating whisky but with water is nicely bal-anced mix of sweet red fruits and a darker, moodier mix of dark chocolate, coffee, and pantry herbs and spices. A chewy maltiness and some oaky tannins round it off.
Finish: More well behaved than some Karuizawas – long but with hints of baked apple, dates, pecans and incense smoke. Elegant.
