Review by Nonjatta contributor - Dramtastic: Karuizawa Vintage Cask 1985 17-year-old #6885. 60 per cent alcohol. Nose: Big on vanilla. Also, licorice, grated carrot, dried pear, apple skins, sawdust, yeast and brine. Slightly perfumed. Palate: Custard on apple pie. Black pepper, licorice, nutmeg, peanut shells, yeast with a hint of marmite. A whisp of smoke. Finish: Long and warming with a slight bitterness. Some curry powder heat on the top palate.
