Expert Senior very_bad_day Tasting note

very_bad_day gave this whisky 92 points
Color
Russetmuscat
Nose

Bourbon monster! Vanille, crème brulée, pamplemousse rose, mandarine, girofle, badiane, chocolat noir, bois humide.

Taste

Toujours ce profil bourbon, caramel, épices, agrumes (de l'orange cette fois-ci), poire, chocolat amer.

C'est très doux si on sait jouer avec l'eau.
Finish

Longue. Sur le pamplemousse rose et le chocolat noir.

Comments

Il aura fallu plus d'une année à ce whisky pour s'ouvrir et déployer sa vrai palette aromatique. Enfin on découvre sont vrai visage.

La patience est une vertu et ça se paie.

‘Japanese bourbon’


N: Ginger, aniseed, white/punk pepper corns, bourbon fruits, bitter/sweet woodiness, flint, grapefruit/lemon/peardrops, dried raspberries, tannic blackberry skin, caramel and Wham bars.  Huge bourbon influence.


T: Sweet, fresh, spicy wood arrival, switching to big caramel and sweet citrus. More flint, fruit spice, fruity toffee and woody dark chocolate throughout. Like so many karuizawa’s, its all about the quality of the wood, this cask having had a huge influence on the rugged spirit. 


F: Chalky, drying, vanilla, witch-hazel and the chocolate wood lingers. Grapefruit infused chocolate wood and cement at the death


C: A well presented whisky which in a blind taste i may well have called it a bourbon, a Buffalo Trace bourbon if pushed. Another Karuizawa im pleased to try but not to buy [at todays prices].  Id recommend some of the Thomas H Handy releases over this.


Scores a B+.

prometheus gave this whisky 91 points

first aproach:
leather, tobacco, spices, coffee, coco, wood (pine?), hints of honey, vanilla (bourbon cask).
very intense, full of texture.
amazing!
(quite expensive, too.)
gotta work on this whisky and improve these tastingnotes.
