Product Description

A single cask release by the Scottish Malt Whisky Society named "nite nurse nipped by piranhas" from the lost Japanese Karuizawa distillery.

Aged in a refill ex sherry butt for 12 years and bottled at natural cask strength of 63%

Nose: Assertive with notes of herbal, minerally and dried citrus fruit, musky melon, spicy grape and barley, vanillin oak, apricot danish pastries.

Palate: Hot and spicy delivery with peppery vanilla, dry oak tannins, butterscotch, custard and honeycomb. Water calms things down a bit with more floral notes, coconut oil and sugared almonds.

Finish: Dark chocolate, peppery sweet oak, hot butterscotch and vanilla ice cream sundae, barley sugar.

A hot and spicy release that needs water for me and does feel like your palate is being nipped at by piranhas!
