    http://www.weinkenner.de/2015/rabenschwarzer-karuizawa-single-malt-ein-whisky-live-10th-anniversary-35205/ Color: Madeira
    Nose: Salty and juicy plum and orange marmalade, leather, cream, dull-metallic with nutmeg, elderberries and subtle vanilla.
    Taste: sweet! Cognac and marzipan, before continuing with tart notes. Nettle tea, black elderberries, smoke, wood stain and now ultra-fat, bitter oak. Notes of coke and dark cherries try to beat through the bitterness. An extremely bitter-sweet medicine.
    Finish: Medium long - very bitter with even more wood, mint and dry leather notes. With aromas of tough fruit jam and heavy oakwood notes fading away.
    Comment: Great nose whisky!
    Price: ~ 400 euros

    super oversherried malts!
    Too smoky and lots of gunpowder inside to cover the dried fruitiness! which you can easily find those elements in the famous Karuizawa.
    Smoky prunes in the aftertaste is the only interesting thing.
