Insider knowledge: Noh Karuizawa 1976 Cask 6719 whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Japan. If distilled in America the spelling would be Noh Karuizawa 1976 Cask 6719 whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Full on sherry. Orchard fruits, apple juice in fact. Ginger, figs, dates.
Palate: Slightly medicinal. Sherbet like. Liquorice.
Finish: Comes off all singing and dancing with zinging top notes. Long, very long.
Overall: Absolutely incredible.
