Karuizawa, First fill Sherry Cask 4021, 1984

RRP £4,850

There are whopping great clues to what we might expect from this malt – the words ‘first fill sherry’ and the alcohol strength. You get exactly what you might expect

Nose: Slightly unusual, with the expected berry, prune and orange notes, but also a sweeter, jam-like wave of fruits. Almost floral, with hints of church incense and polished wood.
Palate: A big-hearted, in your face, all-rounder, with prunes, plums, orange, sherry berries, hints of peat and smoke, and a touch of aniseed or hickory. It’s the oral equivalent of viewing a big fruit bowl through a kaleidoscope. Totally intriguing.
Finish: It scampers off on a long wave of fruit, oak, and herbs.
