Miyagikyo 10

The Nikka Miyagikyo 10 year old. The youngest standard from the Nikka Miyagikyo distillery with an age statement. Bottled with a solid 45% vol.

  • Nose: Green vegetables, fresh and light malt, banana, tropical fruits, water makes it fruitier 
  • Mouth: A bit smokey and grassy, slightly oily
  • Finish: Spices, caramel, vanilla, poundcake with caramel cream, cream, light smoke/ peat and oak.
Comment: Generally not too, it doesn't feel too young although it still feels not completely round. Unlike with the Yoichi I think the Miyagikyo 12 is a good step up from the 10yo.
