Nikka Whiskey Miyagikyo Single Malt 70cl (Boxed)


Masterful Single Malt perfect for those who want to enter the world of Japanese whisky, the Miyagikyo Single Malt was created to replace the previous No Age category and comes from the distillery of the same name founded in 1969 by the father of Japanese whisky, Masataka Taketsuru. Inspired by the great distilleries of the Highlands, Miyagikyo was built in the mountains of Sendai , in perfect contrast with the first distillery, Yoichi, built along the coast. Refined mainly in ex-Sherry barrels , this Single Malt includes whiskeys of different ages and can be appreciated for its elegant character and its distinctive aromas .

Deep golden yellow in colour, it presents intense fruity notes of banana and apricot on the nose, together with floral hints of broom, in the background of barley candy and licorice. The gustatory impact is lively and tasty, with spicy notes of ginger in the foreground, followed by coconut and cinnamon, with numerous tasty references of cocoa and smoky notes. The finish is soft and endless and leaves behind a long trail of tobacco and spices.
