Light in body, yet full of flavour, an excellent introduction to Japanese single malts. This whisky is distilled in a pot still heated by indirect steam at a low temperature. Miyagikyo Single Malt has an elegant fruitiness and a distinctive aroma with a strong Sherry cask influence. Nose: Barley sugars, red apples, dried pears, lemon pie, nougat, apricots. Palate: Lemon sherbet, macadamia nuts, marzipan, white pepper, and spearmint. Finish: Nougat, macadamia nuts, barley, hints of oak.

One for no age statement naysayers. An eloquent expression of sweet osmanthus, baked lemon, yuzu, violin resin, rich malts, and bonfire aromas on a favorite woolen jumper. It glides across the tongue with sweet barley sugar, but attests to greater depths; grapefruit, spicy ginger, and mandarin developing milk chocolate-coated, candied lemon flavors. A firm finish: green cardamom spices slowly releasing their grip on the front of the palate, leaving clingy vanilla. Unbound by an age statement, it’s a beautiful offering.
