General description

My absolute favorite Scotch-inspired Japanese whiskey. Just the right amount of sweetness with a touch of peat smoke.

General description

Picked up samples from the two Nikka distilleries to compare - Yoichi is the other single malt and both are nas. The Miyagikyo is very sweet all around with citrus, honey and oak on the nose. Fruit and caramel on the palate followed by pleasant salty notes. Marzipan follows through and ends with a nice spicy and sherry influenced finish. Its sweet and delicate but enjoyable and would make a nice after dinner pairing with fruit.

General description

Loving this at the moment. Rate this more than the Chita single grain and Hakushu single malt.. A real good entry drink if you decide to try Japanese whisky. It's not as light as the Hakushu SM or Chita SG, and not as peaty as Hibiki Harmony. It sits on its own as a great NAS. Flavoursome, filled with floral notes. Great for easy drinking with the mates or missus.

Nose

Blooming floral

Palate

Burnt caramel with hints of honey.

Finish

Smooth and exotic

General description

Nose a bit aggressive. Nice taste but not rich enough. Final too short.
Not too bad but you can buy better for less.
