BOW (91)

TASTING NOTE LMDW: Color: amber with greenish reflections. Nose: rich, refined. Malted barley, sherry with rancio, dried fruits (date, fig), orange zest and red fruits (strawberry, raspberry, morello cherry) compete in intensity. "eau-de-vie, animal notes (leather), liquorice stick, pipe tobacco and heady flowers (iris). Palate: dense, fleshy. She has a chest. She affirms loudly her oriental identity, loukum, mint tea and falafel. With a great finesse, the mid-palate breathes an offshore wind that deposits spray on the taste buds and notes of barley fields. The rigor of its distillate admires the youthful expression of this vintage 1984. Final: long, silky. Its precious woodiness has hints of apricot pie, quince jelly and fresh fig, and extends to walnut, geranium flower and incense. The retro-olfaction is malty and the empty glass marked by chlorophyll and noble spices. Comment LMDW: It's single malts for which everything seems easy, obvious, natural. Karuizawa is undeniably one of those. This 1984, is in line with the finest sherry casks of the distillery, at once balanced, complex and deep. One could add without lying, superior, haughty and subtle.
