I forgot to post my notes of the Karuizawa 1986 60.7 % (or 60.1 % ?) cask 7387.
Nose: spices, wood, leather, slightly fruity and a wiff of cooked ham. It's a bit hot too, but not that much. I like it (yes, I know, again). It's all DT's fault. He got me started on these whiskies.
Palate: hot again, spices, mandarins, wood again. With some water it becomes more oily-like. The spices keep coming along with liquorice. It's more dominant than in the nose but it's not over the top.
Finish: long, some tannins, a bit dry too and after a few minutes it becomes a bit more prickly (nothing to dislike though!)
It's a diesel. It starts slow but then it builds up and up ...
