Nose
Hard to get into initially,then there's chocolate and a little hazelnut note. Water brings out moorburn,wet coal, treacle scones and a farmyardquality.
Palate
Substantial and lightly gripping. Good structure and smoky taking it up another level.Cypress and light violet. There's a little dried fruit.Muscular.
Finish
Long and lightly fragrant.
Comment
The soft juicy Miyagikyo shows its darkside.

Nose
Very shy at first then after a little while this huge peat note swirls up. Some farmyard notes and sweet hay. A doused coal fire.
Palate
Big and lets you know who is boss. Sweet peated notes and a little Christmas cake.
Finish
Just keeps going.
Comment
Needs to be treated with respect,but very satisfying.
