Whisky Reviews for Karuizawa 12-year-old
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.60 points
- Definitely not the best Karuizawa. Only the final is unpleasant. The rest is still passable. Rather in line with all diluted older versions.
Very slightly sulfur without it being embarrassing. Aromas of sherry. Made of leather. A woody not very fine. Some flowers and agrums. It's not very interesting and very short, something is missing.
With time opens on the caramel.
Aqueous. On oak and sawdust. It must be kept for a moment in the mouth so that some red fruits come out.
Almost inexistent. On the wood juice.
- Nose: Sherry, green banana, berries, hint of oak and smoke, quite sweet, reminiscent of young Aberlour
Mouth: Mild, a bit oak
Finish: Oily, again relatively sweet, rather short, sherry, a bit oak again, towards the end earthy with fruits and honey
