Whisky Reviews for Miyagikyo Manzanilla Wood Finish
2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.40 points
- This edition reserved for Japan is great. Miyagikyo has always stood and still stands in the shadow of Yoichi. But this edition is magic. The sweetness and sweetness of whisky meet the mineral dryness of manzanilla. The result is a wonderful game of aromas, raisins and chocolate, but also mint, camphor and rosemary. The finale is just strong enough to add new aspects to Miyagikyo's great character. In addition to the sweet aromas of dried fruit, coconut and milk chocolate, you can enjoy the slightly sweet and sour finish of the barrel.
- ¥2600 / shot at Takumiya.
Appearance: Orange-golden, not quite amber. Noticeably dark than the Apple Brandy.
Nose: Old wet oak, wine, cellar dankness, honey, black pepper. Dankness of grandpa’s wine cellar is strong.
Palate: Big sherry, oak, old barrel, smooth and spicy.
Finish: Mild, spicy, sherry, cinnamon.
With Water: Not necessary.
Overall: Mild and spicy with lots of sherry. Reminds me a bit of the old Teachers 12 with these cellar oak notes. Tasty stuff, and quite a bit more interesting than the Apple Brandy version.
