On the nose, Miyagikyo Single Malt reveals a flowery, fruity bouquet, combining notes of banana, exotic fruit, lime blossom, white flowers and iris, underlined by a subtle touch of honey. On the palate, its powerful character reveals spicy nuances of ginger and cinnamon, as well as greedy hints of chocolate and licorice, harmoniously complemented by herbaceous tones of alfalfa and clover. The finish offers deep complexity with spicy cardamom tones, stewed fruit flavors and a delicate hint of tobacco leaves and toasted nuts.
Nestled in the heart of the Miyagi Valley, the Miyagikyo distillery is renowned for the quality of its spring waters and clean air. This single malt is the result of a blend of whiskies of varying ages, aged in separate casks, the majority of which have been matured in ex-sherry casks. This recipe gives this whisky a remarkable roundness and exceptional delicacy, amplifying the delicate, fruity style typical of the distillery.
The box, adorned in a plum color evocative of whisky's fruity character, contains two glasses by German crystal-maker Riedel. These glasses, specially designed for tasting spirits with large ice cubes, offer optimal tasting, thanks to their straight walls that prevent the ice cubes from getting stuck in the center, unlike Old Fashioned glasses. This gift set is an invitation to savor the elegance and subtlety of Miyagikyo Single Malt in a complete and refined experience, perfect for whisky lovers in search of a memorable tasting experience.

Honshu - Miyagi
The distillery Miyagikyo
It is in the Miyagi valley at the confluence of the Nikkawa and Hirose rivers that Masataka Taketsuru, founder of Nikka, decided to establish his second distillery after three years of intense research.
Founded in 1969, the Miyagikyo distillery is located in the northeast of Honshu Island in a hilly area covered with maple and coniferous forests. The volcanic soil filters the water from the naturally occurring springs which are known for their purity.
Made of whiskies exclusively distilled, aged and bottled in Japan.
