I had this bottle of Miyagikyo Single Malt sitting on the shelf for some time. It was meant for a special occasion and the baby back ribs we made were just what we waited for (Food pics in next post...).
While the Yamazaki seems more elusive than Nessie, this is not only affordable, but also obtainable. At 45% alc, a SINGLE, small ice cube is exactly what Mr Morton recommends. Yes, the soft toy squid. With that, this Whiskey is really coming to life with full flavor. A nice rounding-off to a great meal. Certainly nothing to have the whole bottle in one sitting, but to ease the evening out to the sofa, this is great.
