Karuizawa 35 Year Old Emerald Geisha
70cl / 59.1% abv
A single cask expression from the legendary Karuizawa distillery, only 265 bottles of this Japanese single malt were produced from a bourbon cask, aged for three and a half decades. Bottled almost twenty years after the distillery's closure at a strength of 59.1% abv, this expression is incredibly rare.
Nose: perfect balance of savoury and sweet with caramel wafers, sultanas and nutmeg, leading to autumn fruits and spicy vanilla.
Palate: buttery, cinnamon buns with sticky vanilla and caramel before a sharp apple element and sweet toffee.
Finish: apple fades softly to reveal a sweet woody spice.
