Nikka Miyagikyo Japanese Single Malt Whisky 750ml

Nikka Miyagikyo Japanese Single Malt Whisky 750ml

$86.99

SKU: WH-6738

WHY: Often considered the Pepsi of Japanese whisky to Suntory’s Coke, Nikka is Japan’s second largest whisky producer, known for its rich and layered whiskies of finesse. Nikka's Miyagikyo Single Malt has an elegant fruitiness and a distinctive aroma with a strong Sherry cask influence that would fool even the most diehard Macallan drinker with notes of toffee, fudge, and spice cake.

HOW: Nikka's two distilleries differ in their styles, with Yoichi producing a coastal style of whisky and Miyagikyo producing a classic Highland style. Using Oloroso Sherry butts, the Miyagikyo whiskies have a richness that melds seamlessly with the delicate pot-distilled spirit.

WHAT: Nikka was founded in 1940 by Masataka Taketsuru, after having overseen construction of Japan’s first whisky distillery: Yamazaki. Taketsuru was sent to Scotland in 1918 to learn about single malt production, and spent his time interning at the Hazelburn Distillery in Campbeltown. After working a ten year contract with Suntory, he left to build the Yoichi Distillery in 1934. Nikka owns and operates two distilleries: Yoichi Distillery on the island of Hokkaido, and the Miyagikyo Distillery in Sendai. In addition to single malt production, the Miyagikyo Distillery has a large Coffey column still used to make grain whisky for blending, as well as gin and vodka.

Stunning Japanese single malt

For those looking for single malt Japanese whisky, look no further. Quite a few brands do the aging and bottling, but not always the distilling. Not so here - this is the real deal. There’s no age given for this or the other single malt from Nikka (Yoichi), but don’t let that worry you. This is among the best Japanese whisky available. Make sure you choose this over the Nikka Yoichi if you’re looking for a non-peated whisky. Both are 45% ABV and you’ll certainly taste more sherry influence than bourbon.

Plums dancing on your tongue

I was very excited to try this, as the Coffey Grain is one of my all time favorites, and every Nikka expression I've tried to date, has been outstanding. This one is totally different than any other Nikka I've tasted. While the Coffey Grain has a distinct bourbon hint to it, and Days is ultra citrusy, and From the Barrel gives you a spicy kick to the teeth that you won't soon forget, the Miyagikyo has a strong plum finish that is completely different than any of those. While the sherry finish is there, and there is no peat at all to this expression, the plums are what stand out on my pallet when I think of this bottle. It gives a body to initial taste that is just lovely, and especially enticing if you enjoy the sweeter expressions of Scotch & Whiskey. Nikka, once again, shows why Japanese whiskies are so prized, as the flavor is spectacular all the way from nose to finish, as there isn't a single missed detail. Nothing out of place, and clean to the last drop. As Japanese whisky has become highly priced, this bottle is still worth the price tag given, even if it is a non-age statement release. The Nikka distillers know how to make quality liquid, and it shows here.
