Karuizawa 1981/2011 57.5%

A friend's recent acquisition sampled in his company a few days ago. This is a recently issued bottling from a now-closed Japanese distillery: think it was the 1981 but I'll confirm the details and amend/add to the title at a later date.

A dark brown sherry monster.

Nose: Outstanding. Warm dried fruits, sherry. A hint of smoke but it fits right in.
Mouth: As above. A little overpowering at first sip, might try adding some water next time.
Finish: Awesome, complex, lingering. Too much going on to adequately describe here.

Many thanks A.
