Nikka opened the Miyagikyo Distillery in 1969 near Sendai, the capitol city of Miyagi Prefecture. This distillery is set in a gorgeous natural landscape with an ample supply of pure water. While the Yoichi Single Malt aims to be a truly Scottish style whisky the Miyagikyo Single Malt has a more unique, more Japanese flavor profile.
Tasting Notes from Nikka:
This single malt whisky features a sweet and elegant fragrance like fresh flowers, combined with a soft maltiness and a delicate, gentle and appealing mature essence derived from sherry casks.
From our tastings we picked up a delightfully chocolatey taste. The finish in the sherry casks adds a wonderful deep fruity tone. The Miyagikyo Single Malt is an excellent addition to any whisky collection.
