Tasting Notes

Nose

As expected, soft and sweet, with fruit and floral notes. Elegant aromas of fresh flowers, soft fruit and some candied orange peel.

Palate

Slightly richer on the palate, with toasty, roasted nuts and ripe fruits. There’s some darker, more complex notes too, in the form of chocolate, along with candied fruit and some honey.

Finish

The fruity, floral notes dominate, ably supported by a touch of toasty oak and spice. Very well balanced and approachable.

Comment

Miyagikyo is at the fruitier, lighter end of the Nikka whisky spectrum, and this bottle is no exception, with an appealing fruitiness.
