Review by Nonjatta contributor - Dramtastic:
Karuizawa Vintage Cask 1985 17-year-old #6885. 60 per cent alcohol.
Nose: Big on vanilla. Also, licorice, grated carrot, dried pear, apple skins, sawdust, yeast and brine. Slightly perfumed.
Palate: Custard on apple pie. Black pepper, licorice, nutmeg, peanut shells, yeast with a hint of marmite. A whisp of smoke.
Finish: Long and warming with a slight bitterness. Some curry powder heat on the top palate.
