Nose
A fishing port as the fleet comes in. Fish oil,creosoted ropes, smoke. Everything is concentrated and resinous. A hint of pot pourri before the big phenols return:charred timbers,pipe tobacco.
Palate
Very smoky big and intense with rich oily weight behind,then sooty,that resin scent,smokehouse,camphor and seaweed. This length and layering is what sets this apart.
Finish
Long,dying embers.
Comment
Ah Yoichi..it's Ardbeg in Hokkaido.

Nose
Smoky and medicinal. A big whiff of creosote. The lighter aromas shine through. Coconut, vanilla. A grassy note. Freshly cut lawn.
Palate
Crisp,clean. Sweetness comes through the veil of smoke. Hint of seaweed. Develops on a pleasant fudgy note (salted butter caramels ?).
Finish
Drying but slightly oily. Keeps spicy.
Comment
An island character. Clean and well structured. I like the salty feel it leaves on the lips. Take a walk on the wild side…
