Nikka Miyagikyo

(Meeya-jeeko)

Also known as the Sendai distillery and established in 1969 in the Miyagi prefecture and the second distillery to be opened by the Nikka group after Yoichi in 1934. If Yoichi is the more masculine style of malt then Miyagikyo is the more feminine and often blended together for the well balanced Nikka blends. A more fruitier and spicy house style than the smoky and rich Yoichi and is also used in the award winning Taketsuru range of blended malts and the Coffey Malt that refers to the type of tall continual still named after the Irishman that invented it rather than the hot beverage! And well worth seeking out along with the Coffey Grain whisky.
