Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or à reflets cuivrés.
  • Nose : récis, net. Les fleurs capiteuses le disputent au chocolat et au tabac frais. Avec fermeté, il devient finement herbacé et boisé (chêne, pin) et évolue sur les fruits secs (datte, amande). Son équilibre parfait laisse place à une oxydation maîtrisée (rancio)
  • Palate : affirmée, droite. Le caramel au beurre salé, des notes de menthol et de tubéreuse donnent le tempo. Une kyrielle d’épices nobles (safran, cumin, cardamome) perpétue le dynamisme de l’attaque en bouche. Elle s’adoucit sur la praline et le lait de coco.
  • Overall : longue, vivifiante. Elle révèle de nombreux fruits rouges et noirs (fraise, framboise, myrtille, mûre) et les épices sont toujours aussi nombreuses. Le caractère intransigeant et sans concession de Karuizawa s’exprime pleinement. Il repose sur un distillat hors du commun destiné à braver les épreuves du temps.
The brand

Merchant

A small company founded in 2006 by David Croll and Marcin Miller, Number One Drinks specialises in the selection, export and distribution of the most exclusive Japanese whiskies. Working in partnership with Ichiro Akuto, the owner of the Chichibu distillery, Number One Drinks sells the latter’s various single malts – Chichibu and Hanyu – in Europe, along with blends and the latest casks from the closed Kawasaki and Karuizawa distilleries, which were purchased in 2011. No other company offers such a wide range of exceptional whiskies, from the youngest, produced by newly created distilleries, to the oldest, often from distilleries that have long since disappeared.
