Karuizawa 19 Year Old (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)

Karuizawa 19yo TBWC Bottling Note

That Boutique-y Whisky Company has got its hands on another parcel of precious, precious Karuizawa single malt! After closing in 2000, whisky from this distillery has become rare as hen's teeth, and it's significantly tastier than hen's teeth too, which is a bonus. Batch 3 is a 19 year old expression from the sorely missed Japanese distillery, with Atom Brands' Toby Cutler on the label, making a daring escape from the original Karuizawa Distillery.

Batch 3 is a release of 194 bottles.

‘That Boutique-y Whisky Company’ bottles single malts, single grains and bourbons from a variety of renowned distilleries as well as producing award-winning blended malts and blends. These whiskies are adorned with cultish graphic novel-style labels.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Syrupy dried fruit, rich earth and bittersweet orange marmalade at first, with hints of rancio, worn leather and ancient oak furniture. Gingernut biscuits, muscovado sugar and dried herbs develop among marzipan and a little vanilla.

Palate: The palate opens with an array of tropical fruit, Medjoul dates and plenty of blackberry notes, which balance against drying oak spice, earth and green Chartreuse. Oily chestnuts, dark chocolate and more aromatic ginger emerge with time, as well as touches of white truffle, red apple and game meats.

Finish: Wonderfully long, dry and bittersweet, with a final flourish of cinnamon bark after an age.
