‘Elixir’ would probably best describe this thick concoction. There is a great richness of ‘dark’ flavours, the vinegar notes are a bit too strong for a 90 rating. – Rating: 88/100

One of those fantastic old Karuizawas that despite being sherry monsters show an amazing density of ‘secondary’ flavours and where everything is perfectly balanced.. – Rating: 90/100

This could be a quite remarkable whisky, if the weakish finish did not drag it down. – Rating: 84/100
