Nikka Miyagikyo 15 Year Old Single Malt Japanese Whisky (700ml)
Miyagikyo (sometimes referred to as 'Sendai') is Nikka's second distillery and was built in 1969 after Taketsuru came upon the site, completely enclosed by mountains and sandwiched between the Shin and Hirose rivers. The areas fresh water and crisp air produce soft and mild malt, while the humidity is considered perfect for spirit maturation. At present eight stills are in operation. Tasting note: Deep gold / polished copper. Issues soft scents of stewed fruits, vanilla and hazelnut following through to an impeccably pure, light to medium bodied, juicy fruit and malt profile that's a simple pleasure. Perfect balance. Ends vibrant yet genteel. Very debonair. 45% Alc./Vol.
