Then touch hinoki cedar and pine resin. It's black.
Huge concentration with bitter orange, tobacco, still burning black tar and burnt wood, discretely smoked but the peat is there (Miyagikyo old), black honeys such as fir and chestnut, memory wood comes back with the pine resin and candied fruit of the citron.
A black Bowmore!
Spice with cigar box, bitter cocoa, liquorice.
In the end, some non-green tannins.
It's very dry with a tangy touch of rhubarb and red fruits.
very long on bitter cocoa and old wood with acidulous dry fruit bursts.
Patinated by a beautiful lacquered wood.
Superb achievement where the former weighs his weight,
a maturity and thickness never touched on a Miyagikyo.
Crazy complexity, oily and so fresh.
like what to assemble 50 years with the youngest is not a heresy.
but at what cost.
If you had to give it a subjective rating, it would be a 94.
