I was allocated a bottle of this from TWE.  Debating whether to purchase.  Hopeful that some folks will get scores and maybe even reviews up before I have to decide.

  • N: Burned popcorn, furniture polish & oil=soot amongst other things. I’ll let you make your own shopping list.
  • T: At first it seems to arrive with generic [European oloroso] sherry, but soon enough the old sherried Mizunara magic comes to light. With it comes a thick oily bite, notes of cherry, Cognac, a little soft rum,... And despite the huge abv [incredible for a 31yo], there’s no bark.
  • F: Chalky ashy coal, more ash,...
  • C: The 33yo is far superior on the nose but i love this ones ashy finish. Not the greatest Karuizawa but ignoring the price, still a super whisky.

Scores a B+
