Whisky Reviews for Karuizawa 1981

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.33 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    This is absolutely wonderful, this hint of ash as you can find it in some Karus here is very elegant introduced, otherwise no Fehlnoten, sau yummy.
    • Nose
      Beautifully buttered, seared butter in an old pan, macadamia nuts, soft leather, very round everything, cherry cake with dark chocolate, dark caramel, nutmeg and cinnamon, fine cocoa, some lavender, orange bitters, old mahogany potion, walnut, meaty, gingerbread & spiced biscuits
    • Taste
      Dates, raisins, cake, hints of ash and autumn foliage, thrilling because not peated (and does not look like one), blood orange, Chesterfieldsessel, fresh, slightly sour coffee beans, beautiful tannins, walnut, chestnut, rosemary and lavender, dark caramel and Cinnamon, nutmeg, spine
    • Finish
      Warming, dry-sweet like almost all Karus, with some nutty-bitter in it, leather, dark malt, hints of ash, cherry pits, dates and nutmeg, very long
