Whisky Reviews for Karuizawa 1981

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.78 points

  1. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Deep nose of cocoa Sherry and dust, licorice. Mouth very powerful and woody, melted fruit and a veil of honey. Very good.

  2. wheatfield scored this whisky 95 points Expert Junior

    Medium amber color. Impressive nose that's heavy on savory elements -- rotten wood, star anise, forest mushroom, wet soil. Sweet baked mango and baked apple too. Mouth is really concentrated baked fruits with spices that range from Christmas to Indian restaurant (cardamom syrup). Quite heavy and pungent mouth. Water brings out more old Highland Park tones, brighter and festive. "Orange oils" keeps coming into my head. One of the better old Zawa casks I've tried.
