  1. Fudschafudscha did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    look at that, Mr. BCD has three bottles in his collections and is the only one to rate it 100 points.

    Please stop that stupid pusher & flipper game!

  2. ASWhisky scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Ranking: 1st nose, 2nd mouth, 3rd finish No doubt it is exciting, especially in the nose, it is pleasant in the mouth, no longer exciting in the mouth and too dry and bitter 彼 に る う う う う (♥ _ ♥)
    • Nose
      Immediately after pouring: still very closed, slightly the slightly sourish grain and sweet - grain in honey, slowly it smells warmer and more intense a while later: only now Karuizawa slowly comes through, maybe only to smell, if you know it. In addition to the beautiful Kawasaki note, you can now hear the notes of a velvety old bourbon barrel, wood, noble vanilla and a touch of warm glue combine to form a soft, round composition. In front of it, bright fruits that have just ripened, banana, pear, lychee, pineapple and an exotic one The impression of alcohol with a coconut feel, the inner walls of the old barrel, and again and again the fine, acidic Grainnote of Kawasaki
    • Taste
      cold on arrival, smooth, watery note, then warm, greenish yellow notes, grain, malt, honey, more noble, vanilla, the composition of vanilla, glue and wood from the nose clearly, a Karuizawanote or Kawasakinote I can not clearly identify, on the palate develop yellow bright fruits, becoming sweeter, pleasant in the mouth, the notes are very changeable and volatile, to the end wood on the palate slightly bitter
    • Finish
      long, bitter, cereals, dry, malty beer, cask notes, baked apple juice dry and on bitter roughened wood

    I agree with Fudschafudscha/s comment, this sort of lame bottle pushing is a bit of a joke & a bit obvious.
    Personally I don`t think any scores of 97-100 on this particular bottle can be relied upon.
    Happy to be proved wrong of course :)

    Whisky contains 30yo Karuizawa Single Malt & 45yo Kawasaki Single Grain, then finished in a Karuizawa Cask.
