Nikka Miyagikyo Single Malt Whisky - Hokkaido, Japan (750ml)
Available in store
This is a single malt from the Miyagikyo distillery, Nikka's second distillery built in 1969. The founder Masataka Taketsuru chose this site in the mountains of Sendai to contrast with his first distillery, Yoichi, located in the coastal area. Using less peaty malt and distilled in a pot still heated by indirect steam, Miyagikyo single malt has an elegant fruitiness and a distinctive aroma with a strong Sherry cask influence. Enjoy notes of white pepper, tobacco and roasted hazlenuts with a soft smokiness on the finish.
