Miyagikyo Single Malt Bottling Note

Replacing the previous NAS Miyagikyo single malt as well as the remaining age statement expressions, this single release will represent the distillery going forward as demand for Japanese whisky remains as strong as ever. The new single malt is said to be made with whiskies spanning various ages (hinting at the inclusion of older whiskies than the previous NAS release) with classic delicate, floral character and primarily ex-Sherry casks used for maturation.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Producer's Tasting Note:
Nose: Full-flavoured, rich. Initially, concentrated iris notes hint at the extreme intensity of the nose. It then develops aromas of malted barley, exotic fruit (banana), liquorice and camphor. Notes of burnt wood and ash progressively settle over the aromatic palette. Long after, white flowers and beeswax make an appearance.
Palate: Firm, lively. Malted barley is at the heart of the palate, coated in herbaceous, liquorice, spiced (ginger, cinnamon) and chocolate tones. Very elegant, the mid-palate also delivers plenty of energy and as it draws to a close, fresh tobacco leaves and coconut intertwine to create a natural symphony of aromas.
Finish: Long, soft. It evokes the scent of wilted roses. Fine tannins balance its tangy character (lemon, grapefruit). It lingers on notes of tobacco, spices (cardamom, ginger), toasted nuts and stewed fruits (apple, damson). The final nose reveals exotic notes (lychee).

Miyagikyo Single Malt Reviews

Not smooth, very overpriced.

I've heard it's much cheaper in Japan, however at my local store it was just shy of $100 a bottle. Unfortunately at this price point I cannot recommend it. This stuff isn't smooth at all and there's a lot of stuff out there at a similar price range that is a much better choice for the money. If you could pick this up for say $50 or less I'd say give it a shot.

Friendly fruity whisky. Don’t hesitate to make a try!

A representative whisky from Nikka whisky Sendai distillery.
The nose is some fresh fruit,banana, apricot and oaky, and it could be a little intensive only if you take a deep breath from it.
For the palate, the spicy level is almost the same as the Nikka Coffey Malt, still smooth though.
The finish is not too long, salty and sweet turn out at the same time on the tongue, then it ends up with more spices.

Lovely light and fruity drink

Light but not weak fruity taste. Generally good neat but not really suitable for mixed drinks. Very fair price when buying in Japan (around 4000 yen).

Fruity & Friendly

The tasting notes above sure have a lot to say. I don't know about all of it. But this is a nice fresh fruity whisky. If you like Glenmorangie 10 year old, you might give this one a try. It has some similar qualities. It is also 45% abv, so even though it is "light", it isn't weak. I generally drink my whisky neat or with a touch of water. But I might find myself having some Miyagikyo with an ice cube or two on a summer evening.
