The Nikka company was set up by one of the Godfathers of Japanese Whisky, Masataka Taketsuru. Masataka was an organic chemist and was the first Japanese man to learn to make whisky in Scotland studying at Hazelburn distillery in Campbell Town. Nikka is now one of the Japanese great producers, making a range whiskies and other spirits in two distilleries, Yoichi situated in the North Island of Hokkaidō and Miyagikyo distillery in Aoba-ku, Sendai.

Blended from a combination of Coffey Grain, lightly peated Miyagikyo Single Malt and a small proportion of Coffey Malt and Yoichi Single Malt, this highly versatile whisky will please new whisky drinkers and connoisseurs alike.

A complex yet approachable whisky, created to be enjoyed in a refreshing highball or mizuwari serve. Enjoy also in a cocktail, neat or on the rocks.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Apples, pears and strawberry liquorice. Perfumed notes of daiginjo sake and white melon. Grainy flavours develop, with freshly crushed barley and malting floor sweetness floating out of the glass. White chocolate and a sprinkling of lemon zest sit at the back.

Palate: Creamy and soft, with grapes and apples on top of toffee and candied lemon. Delicate white chocolate notes are joined by darker liquorice hints and a tiny touch of barrel char smokiness. Right at the back is a bowl of apples, freshly peeled and sliced.

Finish: Lemon zest and buttery biscuits. Barley sugar sweetness to leave grain and spice.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
