Karuizawa 15 yo

by Oliver Klimek on October 11, 2010


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark Amber
Nose: Dried figs, prunes, cherries, just a hint of smoke.
Palate: Figs, prunes and cherries again, stronger smoke on the palate, gentle wood spice.
Finish: Very long, dry and a bit smoky.
Overall: A great balance between smoke and full-flavoured sherry. Very very nice, but the 40% bottling strength makes it a wee bit watery.

Rating: 85/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Chestnut
Nose: Cigar box, dried figs, prunes, a hint of nutmeg.
Palate: Grapes, figs, prunes, chocolate, nutmeg and a little chili .
Finish: Long, fruity and spicy.
Overall: You don’t find younger sherried Glenlivetes very often, and this is quite a fine specimen. Rich and fruity with a nice spicniess that is just about right.
