3 out of 5 stars
( 20 )

Previously only available at the Miyagikyo distillery in Sendai, this expression was released as one of the annual distillery shop bottlings, adding to the rarity of the bottle. Bottled at cask strength, the name of the bottle fully introduces the dominant notes of the whisky, imparted from the large number of sherry-aged vintages within the single malt.

Tasting Notes

"Dark cherries and rich fruitcake aromas come through with intensity, preparing you for the power of a 55 % cask strength release. But then a surprising smoothness follows on the palate, with gingerbread, rich sherried raisins, and juicy orange all working together in harmony. The raisins and orange linger, delivering a long, "sherry and sweet" finish."
