Sherry Cask 3663

Karuizawa, Sherry Cask 3663

RRP £6,500

Distilled in 1984 and bottled in 2013, this is just shy of 30 years old, and a great age for Karuizawa. This another bottling with distinctive mushroomy notes.

Nose: Cherry, dark chocolate, toasted oak, sweeter maple syrup notes, and liquorice. The sherry, cherry, and berry notes become more pronounced with water.
Palate: Big, dark, and sherry rich, with burned berries, wood char, mush-room earthiness, damp fir trees, and an intriguing battle between pronounced tannic spices and sweeter liquorice and menthol notes.
Finish: A loud, proud sherry fruit exit which lingers pleasingly.
