Colour: full gold. Nose: similar to cask #6207 at first nosing but slightly less aromatic. More coffee too. Mouth: more complex this time, more spices, dried fruits, oranges, kumquats, cough syrup, tar, lapsang souchong… High quality. Finish: long, spicy. Bitter herbs in the aftertaste. Comments: much to my liking

Words Of Whisky:

Color Russetmuscat
A great savory nose, with a tiny speck of peat and hints of sweetness. Varnish, but in the loveliest way possible, with milk chocolate and cocoa. Then some soy sauce, followed by an almost coastal aroma. Salted peanuts also. Maybe not the most complex, but very rich and well-balanced.

A subtle hint of peat (more present than in the nose), some brine. Then old, dirty sherry. Leather, burlap and wood polish. Pretty spicy with a fair amount of pepper.

Peat smoke, but very soft. Spicy, fresh oak and a hint of caramel. Nice and long.

My first Karuizawa, and it did not disappoint. I could get used to this!
