This rare version of the Miyagikyo single malt has been released as a series of "Nikka Discovery highlighting Nikka's various experiments in every making process. With a focus on the diversity of ingredients within the distillery, this expression consists only of peaty batches and offers a pleasant surprise that overturns the preconceived "floral and fruity" image of Miyagikyo. Please experience its exquisite combination of distinctive peaty notes and boldness, leaving behind an estery hint in the aftertaste.
From the Producer:
Palate: Distinguished and dynamic. The attack is just as exotic, while also revealing both honeyed and floral notes. As for the peat, it finesses itself into every nook and cranny. Covered in a fine layer of ash, the mid-palate is deeply rooty allowing the expression of a refreshing minerality.
Finish: Long and well-balanced. At the start of the finish, a chocolate, vanilla and spicy peat takes center-stage. Tangy flavors of ripe fruit slowly spread across the taste buds. The empty glass precisely replicates the aromas of cigar, wildflowers and black liquorice.
