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.
Due to steam heat distillation, whiskies from the Miyagikyo distillery are known to be distinctively mild and fruity compared to the more powerful taste of Yoichi malts.
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.
"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." - George Koutsakis, Distiller
