Nose: Very well balanced with gentle peat and pleasing malty aroma. Palate: Round, pleasant taste with good structure. Rich palate derived from careful aging in hand selected casks. Finish: Long smooth finish with a touch of fruit and spice.
Nikka From the Barrel is a blend of multiple types of malt and grain that Nikka reserves. It was created to deliver full flavors and richness of whisky “from barrels” which only blenders can sniff and taste. As the whisky contains so many characteristic components at a higher alcohol of 51.4%, it is essential to let the liquid “marriage” in used casks for another few months for it to stabilize and harmonize. The concept of the unique short squared bottle is “a small block of whisky”, which perfectly visualizes the rich and strong taste of the whisky inside.
