The fifth instalment in the Karuizawa Geishas series, bottled by Elixir Distillers and exclusive to The Whisky Exchange, is comprised of two single-cask bottlings of this profoundly-rare and sought-after spirit.
Aged in sherry casks for 31 and 36 years respectively, these Sapphire Geishas showcase the rich and lavish characteristics for which Karuizawa’s output is so famed.
Tasting notes for the 31-year-old include aromas of chocolate and leather, leading to dried fruits and a “deep, earthy savouriness” on the palate.
The 36-year-old is said to have notes of dried cherries, raisins, leafy, damp wood and cedar on the nose. The palate is described as having flavours of chocolate covered liquorice, blackcurrants, tar, spice and brown sugar.
