Member Ratings and Notes

Nose:  Very dry sherry notes, spicy and wood.

Palate: Fairly dry sherry with pipe tobacco. 

Finish: Dry sherry, motor oil, chewy-cigar butt type mouthfeel.

 

Like all Karuizawas, it has a lot going on, but it's less balanced than some and it's desert dry.

 

I vacilated between B and B+; at first I thought it was more interesting than good, but it was interesting enough to make me keep wanting more, and the more I drank, the more I liked it, so B+ it is.
