What does Miyagikyo taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Miyagikyo Japanese Whisky. It's based on all Miyagikyo drinks in our large database and gives you a chance to taste Miyagikyo before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
