Whisky Reviews for Karuizawa 1989

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.61 points

  1. Claudio + Cats scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    No highflyer, had better Karuizawa. Sherry is missing. For the similar price, the Caskstrength 1-4 are much better.

  2. magic_slim scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Special and unusual for us Europeans. A new experience in whisky but I liked it.
    • Nose
      Fresh, tingling and alcoholic. The presence of sherry is obvious. Nougat, chili and gooseberries - a strange but tasty combination.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Sherry, honey and old wood with radish. A little Shochu.
    • Finish
      Very long with a hot spicy aftertaste. At first there is some sherry as well but later on there are only hot spices lingering on and on and on ...
