Miyagikyo is Nikka’s second distillery, founded in 1969. It is located near Sendai, on Japan’s main island Honshu, and is surrounded by mountains and two crystal clear rivers. This environment provides the perfect climate to produce a soft and mild whisky. Nikka Miyagikyo 10 Years Old is a 10-year-old single malt. This whisky has an elegant and floral nose with aromas of malted barley, vanilla, caramel, citrus, smoke and fine oakiness. The palate is creamy with notes of oak, coconut and milk chocolate, leading to a firm and vegetal finish with hints of slightly bitter hops, almond and spices.
