Pretty unique taste and only to those who appreciates it will love this. It has a burnt rubbery smell to it but that is the finish that i esp love about this cask.!

Un Karuizawa typique, très sherry: 

de belles notes terreuses, un peu de fumée, de l`orange, du chocolat, un peu de vernis, de la noix, des épices et une finale moyenne.
