Аромат: солод, горячее фруктовое варенье, сухофрукты, сливочная помадка, молочный шоколад, травянистые ноты с кислинкой, пряности.  

Вкус сладкий: солод, перец, шоколадные конфеты, леденцы, сухофрукты, винная кислинка и ягодная горчинка. Вкусно.

Послевкусие долгое: сухофрукты, табак, крепкий чай, вяжущий дуб, горчинка.

Вывод. Очень привлекательный виски. Бодрый, яркий, вкусный, комплексный.

Оценка: 87 (n22t22f21b22).

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Datteln, pure tolle, tiefe Sherrynose ohne dabei Antik zu werden (dafür sicher auch viel zu jung), Rosinen überall, schon leicht gammlige Kirschen, Himbeerkompott, modrige Eiche trotz des Alters, Gummireifen, aber positiv, Walnuss

Taste

Bittereiche (aber lecker), sehr eigen, Rosinensirup, dunkles Pflaumenmuß, dunkelster Burgunderwein, Apfelschale, Toffee, Oregano und Thymian, sehr voll und sherrylastig

Finish

Leider nicht allzu lang aber lecker, Eiche, Kräuter wie Thymian weiterhin im Rachen, Kirschkerne und rote Weintrauben

Comments

Der Abgang ist das einzige, was aufgrund des Alters nicht mithalten konnte, sonst war es eine geniale erste Karu-Erfahrung, die Benotung hier kann ich nicht wirklich nachvollziehen (oder manche Notes an sich)

Karuizawa Asama 1999/2000 (46%, OB, 2011)

Nose: Dry sherry, spices, dried fruits, underwood.

Mouth: Round. Fudge and spices. Sweet.

Finish: Medium. Fudge and dried fruits again, some oranges too.

Let's forget the current price of this bottle and consider this Asama for what it is. A really nice and enjoyable whisky.

Nez lourd fruits compotés, légers tanins, vanille. Bouche fruitée agréable pleine et ronde. Finale amère. Moyen. Q/p totalement délirant.

Si l'on est honnête en ignorant le nom Karuizawa noté sur l'étiquette, ce whisky reste un sherry sec, marqué par le bois, et avec pas mal d'amertume en final. 
Le prix de 60 € était cohérent, ne mérite pas de dépenser plus. 
80/100

from purchased sample:

Nose: Fudge, and maybe a little chocolate and toffee, and kirsch. A little wood and something like a damp green forest. Vinuous, though somewhat earthy and savory - not the sulphur/salted meats. Surprisingly dark and rich for a whisky this young. Rather malty.

Palate: Really nice texture and thickness. Brown sugar stew and honey, which give way to more fudge with flecks of chocolate. Wood, ginger, mellow orange zest are secondary. Bitter and sour, turning into something very nice, topped off with some herbs and twigs.

Finish: This is really something. Fudgy, a little extracted fruit. This is not a powerhouse Karuizawa, but it's really just very well composed and very solid.

Color
Deep gold
Nose

Caramel, beaucoup de bois, des fruits secs, et surtout de la noix fraîche. Un peu de miel, des dattes. Un peu liquoreux. 

Nez très agréable. 
Taste

Le nez était plus prometteur. C'est un sherry sec et simple : sucre, bois, fruits secs (amande) un peu d'amertume. Pratiquement aucune onctuosité, c'est austère. 

Finish

Moyenne, sur le bois, la vanille, les fruits secs. toujours de l'amertume. 

Comments

Bien mais sans plus. Nez très sympa.
