Tasting Notes

This rare gem is one of two single malts in the Nikka portfolio. Coming from their second distillery in the south of Japan, the impact of the difference in climate and place and slight changes in technique are manifest. This 12 year drinks with astounding maturity, with a very gentle, sweet profile that slowly integrates many different barrel-seasoned flavors.

Staff Pick Notes

This Japanese single malt from Nikka is the perfect gift for a whisky drinker looking to branch out from stables like Macallan, Oban and Glenlivet. Miyagikyo resonates with complex and deep notes of exotic fruit, candied cherries, and a soft leathery finish with just the faintest touch of smoke giving it tons depth and complexity. Though overall very delicate in nature, this whisky is super dynamic and unique and offers a gateway to a world of malts with heartier personalities. Plus, because Japanese and Scotch whiskies live under the same umbrella of style, helping someone to discover Japanese single malts is as safe as staying in Scotch-land.
