Nikka Discovery 2021 Miyagikyo Peated Single Malt Whisky

Miyagikyo expression was crafted solely from batches of peated malt, offering a significant distinction from the "light and fruity" image of Miyagikyo.

    Nose:    Charcoal smoke, grilled pineapples and peaches, some vanilla cream with a touch of buttered toast.

    Taste:    Hot and ashy, fades into salted butter popcorn, raw almonds or peanut shells. Develops into something sweeter, with fruits kicking in, grilled pineapples, peaches, raisins and some fruitcake.

    Finish:    Fairly quick, continuing with the nutty astringency and fresh cut herbs, but develops into this nice creamy sweetness, almost like that of peaches and cream.
