Karuizawa 35yo 1978/2014

Karuizawa, probably the DRC of the whisky world now with prices going through the roof at recent auctions. A very generous friend decided to open one of these at a dinner party. This was a Number One Drinks bottling for LMdW aged 35 years in a bourbon cask. Should be interesting.
Comments: Nail varnish followed by intense apricot and pear accompanied by a hint of minty smokiness. The palate is strong on the citrus and honey with a spicy, medicinal finish. What a great dram with such varied complexity.
