  • N: Incredibly it’s almost green in colour which is no bad thing. Blue and you should think again. Notes of Demerara sugar, black onion seeds, garam masala, ground hog plum powder, fuchia, sweet pea, brinjal pickle and lots of confectionary fruits.
  • T: Yep that's the business. At first it’s very old & woody, with a basic sherried spirit base. Before that is, the complex stuff kicks in and the magic begins. The spirit and wood begin to swirl. There’s lots of spirit & lots of wood and yet there’s never a clash, only balance & integration. No problem adding water. In fact it becomes even more alive, the wood brimming and zinging with life.
  • F: Long and just so/most composed. Slight clean ash at the end with unusual/exotic vegetal butters.
  • C: One of the most composed Karuizawa‘s I’ve tried. It also reinforces how amazing that previous [‘64] Bowmore was. Subjective palate preferences will divide them but both are equally amazing as they are different.
