Whisky Reviews for Karuizawa 1970

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.93 points

  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Still a very good Karuizawa. Without Sherry's influence, it lacks for me some undergrowth aromas characteristic of the distillery. But we still have a very nice fruit salad. Alcohol is extremely well integrated. Beautiful glass.
    • Nose
      Sublime nose that shocks by its delicacy. One is indeed on a Bourbon cask here, and for once, I believe the label.

      Gunpowder, precious wood, wax, solvent, paint. Cherry, brandy, plum, rancio, papaya, peach, strawberry.
      Surprisingly very fruity.
      Chocolate, cocoa powder, camphor.
      The more the whisky comes, the more exotic comes out.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it's sublime. Many red fruits, rancio, wood, cognac.
      Strawberry, cherry, plum, dry reasons. Hazelnut.
      Chocolate, varnished wood.
      It's very balanced and balanced.
    • Finish
      Long finish on the fruit, the solvent, the waxed wood.

  2. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    One of the rarest and oldest ex bourbon single cask from this famous distillery.

    I think the oldest ex bourbon single cask from Karuizawa was distilled in 1969 and bottled in 2012 at an age of 42 years (cask #8183, exclusively for LMDW).
