Coming to replace the classic range of Miyagikyo whiskies, the latest Nikka single malt perfectly transcribed the delicately malty and fruity profile, typical style of the distillery. Miyagikyo Single Malt blends whiskies of different ages, that a certain proportion was aged in sherry casks bringing roundness and gluttony to the final result.
Starting with a nose rather flowery and fruity delivering aromas of banana, tropical fruit, lime, white flowers, iris, all coated with a touch of honey, Miyagikyo Single Malt expresses its full power in the mouth revealing more spicy notes of ginger and cinnamon, but also some tasty notes of chocolate and liquorice. It finishes with spicy notes (cardamom), stewed fruits (apple, plum and lychee), and a delicate hint of tobacco leaves and roasted nuts.
Located in the heart of Miyagi Valley, a northern region of Honshu island renowned for its clean air and the quality of its spring water, Miyagikyo distillery produces a refined malt distilled in traditional pot stills or sometimes in column stills usually used for the distillation of cereals other than barley.

Our tasting experience of Miyagikyo Single Malt.
Miyagikyo Single Malt has a nice golden color, and gives off fruity aromas of green apple, malted cereals and licorice. In the mouth the texture is rather fine and pleasant, and the fruitiness asserts itself with hints of currant and cherry. The finish is rather soft, the Miyagikyo Single Malt does not leave any bitterness.

Voilà un whisky d’une grande finesse. Multiples arômes mais assez d’alcool pour structurer le tout et éviter le mièvrerie de certains japonais
