Tasting note

  • Appearance : Acajou à reflets orangés.
  • Nose : Riche, concentré. Le boisé est superbe (salin, rancio fruité). Le cuir et les agrumes constituent son centre. Sur le pourtour, on trouve des fleurs capiteuses (lavande, chèvrefeuille), des épices (cannelle, cumin). De plus en plus subtil, il trace une ligne droite qui le mène tout droit à l’orge maltée.
  • Palate : Puissante, pimentée. Elle se révèle très différente du nez. La gelée de coing, la confiture d’agrumes et la racine de gentiane sont quelques-uns de ses attributs. Ensuite, le chocolat et le pamplemousse font bon ménage.
  • Overall : Longue, longue. Place de nouveau aux fleurs capiteuses (pivoine), aux fruits secs (abricot), au safran, à la coriandre, à la cardamome et aux noix fraîches. Le tilleul embaume, juin est arrivé. Le miel se prépare. La rétro olfaction laisse apparaître des feuilles de menthe et de thé. Le fond de verre est crémeux et aérien.
The brand

The brand

The Karuizawa distillery was built in 1955 in the town of the same name, in the prefecture of Nagano surrounded by the Japanese Alps. Japanese whisky generally has a very good reputation, but Karuizawa is especially sought after and appreciated by connoisseurs; it has accumulated an impressive number of medals in competitions. Just like Macallan, it is a whisky that owes much of its character to the type of barley that is used: (‘Golden Promise’) and to ageing in sherry casks. Production stopped in 2000 and bottles are becoming increasingly rare.
