Nikka Whisky From The Barrel Japanese Whisky



51.4% ABV

102.8 Proof

The nose is intense — slightly meaty, a little green at times, and toasty with ample wood. Lots of umami here, the aroma is classically Japanese (although Japanese mizunara oak is not used in the blend). The palate is where the whisky really shines: Nutty, with notes of coconut and honeycomb, it’s got loads of spices, well-seasoned wood, and a meaty, bacon-like edge. As it opens up on the palate, it reveals silky fruit, both fresh and dried, with distinct notes of plum. The finish is bold and lingering, with some peppery notes emerging alongside a return of big, bold woodiness.
