50cl | 51.4% ABV | Japan

in stock

The award-winning Nikka From The Barrel is an explosion for your taste buds! Combining both grain and single malt whiskies from the Miyagikyo and Yoichi distilleries, this blend is bursting with flavour, as well as incredible character.

A richly flavoured, hugely complex yet affordable Japanese whisky. While it dims the nose a little, we find it benefits from a little water to allow the flavours to open up. An impressive all rounder.

About this product

The blended combination of whiskies from both of Nikka’s distilleries are married in serval types of casks, these include sherry butts, bourbon barrels and refill hogsheads – enabling stunning intensity and great depth.

Masataka Taketsuru is the founder of Nikka Whisky. He enrolled at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, becoming the first Japanese ever to study the art of whisky-making. Later he returned to Japan and produced the country's first single malt whisky.

In 1934 Masataka opened the Nikka Whisky Co distillery in the town of Yoichi. Later, his second distillery was located in foggy glen surrounded by mountains and at a junction of two clean rivers, by coincidence the name of the river was Nikkawa.
