One of three in the distillery key malt series- See "Malty and Soft" and "Sherry and Sweet". This single malt is only released at the Distillery in Sendai, Japan. It's a rare cask release with only a yearly release of the series of single malts.
The Miyagiko is Nikka's second distillery, having opened in Sendai in 1969. Miyagiko's different natural environment, and the use of steam heat in distillation, as opposed to coal, results in a malt whisky with a different character from that of Yoichi. Consequently, whiskies from this distillery are known to be distinctively mild and fruit compared to the more powerful taste of Yoichi.
