Re-Tasted: Nov 2015
Deep, rich aromas of intensely treacly sherry and dusty peat. Hints of barley, greengage, marmalade orange, buttery vanilla and fresher citrus notes appear along with some resiny oak (mizunara?). It feels like the blend is predominantly from Miyagikyo.

The palate is full and soft with the sherry influence far subtler. Lightly herbal with dusty peat and a lovely cleansing citrus middle plus hints of barley and green apple. Long taught oak and wood spice finish with a slightly austere, minerally, lightly salted after-taste.
