Miyagikyo 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Japan - 45.00% 7 Nose is more attractive than the palate. Lacks elegance and cohesion.
Miyagikyo 1987, Cask No. 60236
Single Malt - Japan - 61.00% 7 How can whisky leave its signature behind that thick oak panelling? No chance.
Miyagikyo 1987, Cask no. 89714
Single Malt - Japan - 61.00% 7 Another example of sherry domination. Where's the balance?
Miyagikyo 1990 19 Years Old
Single Malt - Japan - 61.00% 7 Funny enough,that strong dram is better neat. But give it time.
Miyagikyo 1991, Cask No. 117705
Single Malt - Japan - 61.00% 7 Quite a nice refreshing dram when generously diluted.
Miyagikyo 22 Years Old 1986 Single Cask
Single Malt - Japan - 63.00% 8 The soft juicy Miyagikyo shows its darkside.
Miyagikyo No Age
Single Malt - Japan - 43.00% 7 Not at its best.
Miyagikyo Single Cask Sendai, 1990
Single Malt - Japan - 60.60% 7 The orangey colour suggests some sherry. Nikka's Sendai distillery has in this instance produced a nuttier, maltier style of whisky than Yoichi.
