Whisky Reviews for Miyagikyo 1990 SMWS 124.5

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.77 points

  1. ARDBERG did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS notes:

    The nose combines a wood-carver’s workshop and various fruits
    (tutti-frutti, blackcurrant, sherbet lemon, banana chips, orange) – ‘an
    odyssey of fruit on a sea of polished oak’.

    We also found coconut, vanilla and honey. The palate continued these
    themes – juicy fruits (mango, kumquat, bramble, peach, pineapple) and
    vanilla custard – the wood now predominantly spicy oak (ginger, clove,
    aniseed, nutmeg).

    With water, what had been quite intense became more gentle, comforting
    and soothing – dried reeds and rushes, green tea and brown sugar on the
    nose – and perfumed exotic fruits, grass, plum jam and teasing, playful
    spices on the palate.

    Excellent whisky - recommended
    • Nose
      Sweet fresh tropical fruit salad at first nosing. Some Wrigley's Juicy Fruit chewing gum, sandalwood and a fresh meadow. Superb.
    • Taste
      Sweet at first mouthfeel, than there is sheer power with notes of green tea. Oaky and very spicy.
    • Finish
      Long and spicy, warming from deep inside.

  3. fop scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    Absolut fantastic whisky. Try it neat, it is drinkable, but with water it opens up and you find yourselve in a tropical fruitgarden. More water and more fruit. Fantastic smells. Great stuff, one of the bests. Thanks E-malt. 94 points on my scale.
