Miyagikyo 12 - 70th Anniversary

Another of the Nikka standard range in 'cask strength' out of the 70th anniversary set. Bottled at 58% vol.
The Miyagikyo distillery is the probably lesser known of the Nikka distilleries.

  • Nose: A bit smoke and peat, honey, sweet herbs, oak, very pleasant
  • Mouth: Oak, dry'ish, a bit tanins
  • Finish: Sweet, oak, again a bit tanins
Comments: While a bit simple it's good stuff, but maybe a bit rough around the edges. Takes water pretty well.
