Nikka Miyagikyo 2019 Limited Edition 50th Anniversary Single Malt Whiskey
Nikka Miyagikyo Single Malt Limited Edition 2019 is one of two releases from Nikka to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the opening of Miyagikyo Distillery, in 1969. Miyagikyo, located near Sendai in a mountainous region between two rivers, produces soft and mild malts. It was intended to be a counterpoint to its sister distillery, Yoichi Distillery, located near the sea in Hokkaido, which produces rich, peaty whiskies. Each release contains whiskies from the past five decades—1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s—which means this bottling contains some of the first whiskies ever produced at the distillery. bottled at 48% ABV.
