Karuizawa 19 Year Old That Boutique-y Whisky Company Description
A cracker of a bottling from the legendary (and sadly now closed) Karuizawa Distillery in Japan. This is the first bottling of this single malt from That Boutique-y Whisky Company and is bound to be a hit among Japanese whisky enthusiasts. The label of this bottling depics Atom Brands' Toby Cutler escaping some henchmen in the original Karuizawa distillery as someone watches on from a safe distance...

Nose:earthy, salty, dark and warm notes with Medjool dates, sultanas and preserved cherries; menthol tobacco, rancio and worn leather.
Palate: a salty manzanilla tang with more earthy qualities; gamey flavours with tannins, ginger, dark chocolate and apple crumb;s herried flavours of Christmas cake, blood orange and Maraschino cherries.
Finish: long, dry, and rich - WOW!
