    http://www.weinkenner.de/2015/rabenschwarzer-karuizawa-single-malt-ein-whisky-live-10th-anniversary-35205/ Color: Amontilado sherry with copperplate engraving
    Nose: Blue berries, plums, oranges, lemons and grapefruit. In addition, a very salty spice with aromas of herb garden, tobacco, balsamic, cream and cottage cheese. But also leaves of mint, vanilla, dark jam, marzipan and oak. Delicious!
    Taste: Rather thin consistency. Salty, creamy, now slowly getting fatter in taste. With aromas of wax, honey, bitter-sweet cough syrup and marzipan. Slides towards the end with lots of sugar liqueur and oak in the finish.
    Finish: long - sweet and bitter - bitter. Sweet marzipan and honey in combination with liquorice and lots of dry, green wood. Extremely bitter ending on the basis of tea.
    Remark: Again an almost perfect nose and an unsurpassable bitterness at the end.
    Price: ~ 1,000 euros
    86 points (nose: 92 / taste: 86 / finish: 79)
