Nikka From the Barrel 500ml
|Bottle volume ml||500ml|
|Country of origin||Japan|
This is a blend of multiple types of malt and grain that Nikka reserves. Nikka From the Barrel was created to deliver full flavors and richness of whisky "from barrels" which only blenders can sniff and taste. As the whisky contains so many characteristic components at a higher alcohol of 51.4%, it is essential to let the liquid "marriage" in used casks for 3-6 months for it to stabilize and harmonize. The concept of the unique short squared bottle is "a small lump of whisky", which perfectly visualizes the rich and strong taste of the whisky inside.
Expert ReviewNikka from the Barrel is bursting with character. Not averse to a drop of water, either. A real star, winning top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards in 2007 and 2010.

This is in many ways a good introduction to Japanese Whiskey. It is a very easy to drink whiskey with a very smooth flavour. It is pretty strong though at 51% so sipping slowly helps.
