The Nikka Tailored Whisky
A premium blend of the historical Japanese whisky maker is a worthy ambassador of the Japanese knowhow and culture as well as Nikka's expertise. Blended with precision and delicacy, this whisky is a blend primarily of malted barley from Miyagikyo in Honshu and Yoichi in Hokkaido, along with Coffey Still grain. The result is a perfect symbol of balance, roundness, and softness, so many adjectives and characterize Nikka.
Deep gold colour, Smooth and round, the nose takes us into a fruity universe with apple, apricot and white-fleshed fruits. Strong with the presence of honey, as well as chocolate notes with orange candied peel aromas. On the palate, gourmet, the mouth offered very interesting duality. On one side, a pastry style marked by vanilla and kouglof and, on the other, the bitterness that is detected with dark chocolate and citrus zest such as tangerine and orange. To finish, in line of the mouth, the bitterness is counterbalanced by slightly toasted notes that reveal the coexistence of vanilla sweetness and fruity bitterness.
