A blend of single malts from the Yoichi and Miyagikyo distilleries and a unique grain whisky, Nikka from the Barrel is married from a selection of different oak casks to create a rich harmony of distinct flavours. This whisky is bottled directly from the cask at close to cask strength and possesses a distinctive personality characterised by solidity, depth of taste and a richly expanding aroma.

NOSE

Rich and fruity, with some peppery spice to liven things up. That delicate orange fruitiness is there along with some creaminess from the oak.

PALATE

Big flavours on the palate; clove and cinnamon spice, malted honey and clean citrus notes. Water softens the flavours, bringing out the clean fruitiness at the expense of some of the toasty spice.

FINISH

At full strength, this lasts a very long time, with the fruit and spice outlasting the oak.
