This is a soft and luxuriantly fragrant single malt whisky from the Miyagikyo distillery, the second distillery of Nikka in Sendal. Massata Taketsuru, the founder of Nikka selected this place because it is completely enclosed by mountains and at the junction of two clean rivers. Miyagikyo s clear water, suitable humidity and crisp air produce soft and mild malt whisky. This whisky, stored and matured for 15 years or more in oak casks, is characterized by a mature nose with a scent of cacao, nuts, and a gorgeous well-rounded palate. The different natural environment and the use of steam heat distillation results in a malt whisky with a different character from that of Yoichi. This single malt whisky features a full and mature nose with an essence of the cask reminiscent of cacao nuts. It is characterized by a deep, mature sweetness and richness that expand softly and fragrantly, and by the soft and smooth tang of its palate.
