    Oh well, too late now.  Bought it.  Hoping for the best!

  2. Johannes de Silentio did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    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+
