Nikka have had a series of wood finished whiskies that started in 2017 with a Moscatel Wood Finish (Japanese exclusive) followed by a Rum Wood Finish for global markets. 2018 sees a Manzanilla Wood, a Bourbon Wood and Sherry Wood Finish added to the list.

Described as a 'soft and fruity' whisky, Miyagikyo employs lightly peated malt. Sherry casks are typically used, in this case, it's a drier style known as Manzanilla. These pale-coloured, bone dry wines are aged in the Spanish town of Sanlucar de Barrameda where cellars are located by the seaside. They offer nutty, sea salt aromas and a light, fresh palate that's a fine accompaniment to shell fish, sushi or smoked salmon. Extremely limited stocks.
