Karuizawa Single Vintage Cask 1989 No. 7410
Review by Nonjatta contributor - Dramtastic:
"Karuizawa Single Vintage Cask 1989 12YO # 7410. 61.3 percent alcohol.
Nose: Heavy notes of baked goods such as warm pie crust and scones; sherry; bar wood, like you'd expect to smells in "Cheers". Vanilla, varnish, and sandalwood.
Palate: A massive spice attack. sandalwood, playdough, vanilla, bubblegum, strawberry, and something like roast chicken. Sounds a little strange but it works.
Finish: Sweet, nutty, fruity, spicy and very long!
General comment: A fantastic Karuizawa.
