Whisky Reviews for Karuizawa 1988 WS

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.30 points

  1. KemmieL did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The bottler is not Whiskysite NL. Its the same bottling as this one https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/5839/karuizawa-1988-wf

    Whiskysite just put their own label on 120 of these bottles

  2. ChungLin scored this whisky 82 points Member Senior

    There is another label of this cask, both of them do not have the classic sherried Karuizawa profile. A nice daily dram but it does not live up to the quality standard from Karuizawa. You may try it if you can find it cheap, otherwise you will be very disappointed, especially at 500euro crazy price now.
