Miyagikyo Sherry Wood Finish
70cl / 46% abv
Nikka’s Miyagikyo distillery has produced another exceptional Japanese sherried whisky with this non age statement sherry cask finish. Bottled at 46% and matured for one year in an ex-sherry butt, this whisky has all the characteristics that have made Japanese whisky so popular across the world.
Nose: filled with the usual floral and fresh fruitiness that Miyagikyo is famous for, and a hint of dark fruits and summer berries.
Palate: the sherry influence peaks through with notes of dried fruits and caramel filling the front of the palate and dark chocolate touching the back of the tongue to create a pleasant bitterness.
Finish: peppery and spicy with just a hint of dried fruit lingering.
