NIKKA Discovery Single Malt Miyagiko Pated 2021

single malt whisky, 0.7 L
Japan / Honshu island
Gift pack

Colour: yellow gold
Nose: Rich and complex. Subtle notes of toast, dry peat, and twigs highlight the distinguished character of the first nose. Allowed to breathe, the peat becomes more intense, almost meatier while simultaneously taking on a light veil of smoke. In the climax, exotic fruit and fresh fig bring lots of breadth and energy to the palette of aromas.
Palate: Distinguished and dynamic. The attack is just as exotic, while also revealing both honeyed and floral notes. As for the peat, it finesses itself into every nook and canny. Covered in a fine layer of ash, the mid-palate is deeply rooty allowing the expression of a refreshing minerality.
Finish: long and well-balanced. At the start of the finish, chocolate, vanilla, and spicy peat take center stage. Tangy flavors of ripe fruit slowly spread across the taste buds. The empty glass precisely replicates the aroma of a cigar, wildflowers, and black licorice.

This rare version of Yoichi single malt is part of the "Nikka Discovery" series: an inside look at the various experiments made during the whiskey-making process at Nikka. Focusing on the diversity of ingredients available at the distillery, this expression is crafted solely from batches of peated malts and offers a pleasant surprise that overturns the preconceived "light and fruity" image of Miyagiko.
