Nikka Miyagikyo 10 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Light, elegant and fresh, with zingy orange and lemon aromas bringing this whisky to life.
Palate: Bursting with citrus fruit, this is fresh, fragrant and enjoyable. A slightly sour note to the fruit adds depth, and the spicy, toasty oak provides good support.
Finish: Very refreshing, with the fruit continuing.
Comment: Clean as a whistle, this is an ideal aperitif whisky, with citrus fruits to the fore.
Tasting Notes by Dave Broom
Nose: Pure and light. Lifted, lightly floral. Lily, broom, fennel, fruit. Hint of nut (hazel/brazil). Pine. Sweetly refined with an extra level of complexity.
Palate: Medium-bodied and lively. Silky, soft fruits. Graceful and smooth with balanced oak.
Finish: Broad. Cedar. Winey.
Comment: Just beginning to pick up complexity. Try this distillery at 12 or 15! World class.
