Miyagikyo Bourbon Wood Finish 2018 Single Malt Japanese Whisky
A highly collectable release from one of Japan’s rarer distilleries. This fruity Miyagikyo whisky was bottled in 2018 after spending an additional year in Bourbon casks. Strictly a limited edition, we secured just a handful, so act quickly if you wish to own one. And don’t forget the other finishes in the set, not to mention the partner releases from the stunning Yoichi distillery.
Hailing from Japan’s largest island, Honshu, Miyagikyo Bourbon Wood Finish has a refreshingly green, almost spring-like quality, which makes it a fantastic choice for the warmer months. There’s pistachio, eucalyptus, gooseberry fool, vanilla, poached pear, freshly hewn wood, green peppercorns, a squeeze of lime and a sense of munching strawberries in hay-lined fields. Roll on summer.
Nikka’s second distillery, Miyagikyo, was built in Sendai 30 years after their first, Yoichi. The idea was to provide a softer counterpoint to Yoichi’s peat smoke and maritime edge. Enclosed by mountains and surrounded by rivers and forests, Miyagikyo delivers more fruit and Sherry influence. Any rare release from this distillery instantly becomes a must-have for serious Japanese whisky aficionados and collectors.
