Whisky Reviews for Karuizawa 31-year-old ElD
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.50 points
- Oh well, too late now. Bought it. Hoping for the best!
- 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+
