Nikka Miyagikyo Single Malt Scotch Whiskey
Considered as the father of Japanese whisky, Masataka Taketsuru founded his company, Nikka, in the 1960s. It operates two distilleries: Miyagikyo, near Sendai and Yoichi, on the island of Hokkaido. Single malts from each distillery are available, as well as blends from the two sites sold under the founder’s name, Taketsuru.
Light in body, yet full of flavor, this is an excellent introduction to Japanese whisky. Elegantly fruity with sherry-cask character.
