Re: The 80s (Feb 25-27, 2011)
How does this one grab you Willie ?
Expression - Karuizawa 1982 Cask #2748
Year - 1982
Age - 27yo
ABV - 56.1
Cask / Bottle No. - #2748 Sherry /
Colour - Bright Amber
Nose - A Huge Christmas Cake nose , Dried fruits , cake dough , dry sherry mixed in with menthol and Latte coffee , a nice whisp of smoke wafts around all the other smells . This is one of those malts you could smell all night but i'll not......
Palate - First thing that grabs you is a lovely dry sherriness , then smoke , spices (cloves , christmas cake....) , a huge incredible mouthfeel !
Finish - Very long , very dry , menthol , sherry , christmas cake , hint of orange and smoke .
Comments - Another one for the 10th Anniversary of The Whisky Exchange bottled in 2009 . Just where are TWE getting these incredible Japanese casks from ? A beautiful Single malt from the land of the rising sun , i'd put this up against anything from Scotland , Wonderful !
