Nikka Miyagikyo Single Malt Japanese Whisky (500ml)

Hokkaido, JAPAN
$99. 99 Bottle
$1199.88 Dozen
ABV: 43%
This is the entry level no age statement bottling from Miyagikyo. Reports have it to be more vibrant and weighty than the older Miyagikyos.
Expect a fragrance of fresh flowers, combined with a soft maltiness and a delicate input from sherry casks. Beautifully packaged. 43% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... Apart from the NAS, a feisty youngster, I find the other [Miyagikyos] too delicate for my tastes. This is not to say they are not refined spirits. More that the ultra delicate style is not to my taste. Certainly they conform to the early mantra of Shinjiro Torii the founder of Suntory, that whisky should be compatible with Japanese food I cannot say this is deliberate on behalf of the folks at Miyagikyo but, I can see Miyagikyo being sipped as an accompaniment to sushi, teppanyaki or yakatori and performing that task very well....The combination of the subtlety of the Miyagikyo style ramped up to the nth degree can create some fascinating contrasts. In the end, nothing is set in stone and I am looking forward to trying more bottling’s of Miyagikyo in the future so my experiences follow suit.
