  • Nikka From The Barrel offers the perfect balance of toffee sweetness and rich malty flavour, with a tinge of smoke for complexity and depth. Here it is in gift set format, Japanese Chic packaging with a Whisky with Scottish influence. A great surprise.
  • Floral nose, with a touch of orange peel and apricots. Boiled sweets and a little spice. Big and well-balanced at first, some spicy oak and ripe fruit coming through and then a tickle of fire and oak at the finish. Add water for a real treat.

The Story of The Nikka Whisky Company

The Nikka Whisky Co. was founded by Masataka Taketsuru, who is widely acknowledged as the father of Japanese whisky. The company has two large distilleries and several blending and bottling plants and is now part of the Asahi Group.

Masataka Taketsuru’s family owned a sake brewery that dated back to 1733. Taught early that sake-making is a painstakingly fine art, Masataka studied diligently and trained as a chemist, preparing to carry on the family trade. However, Scotch whisky captured the young man’s imagination and he decided to dedicate his life to it. In 1918, Masataka Taketsuru travelled to Scotland, where he learnt the secrets of whisky-making and met the woman who would become his bride, Jessie Roberta Cowan.

In 1920, Masataka returned to Japan with his new bride and worked with a company to produce Japan’s first whisky. It soon became apparent that to produce whisky the way he felt it should be made, Masataka would have to become independent. In 1934, he established Nikka Whisky and built its first distillery in Yoichi, Hokkaido, which he had always considered to be the ideal whiskymaking site in Japan. He subsequently built a second distillery in the foothills of Miyagi to produce rich, fruity and elegant whiskies. In the decades since Nikka has become a fixture in Japan, known for its passion for quality and flavour.

Somewhere between an oaky highland malt and the caramel of the best bourbon, Nikka whisky is unique and really, really tasty.

I've bought this on Amazon a couple of times now, it's surprisingly smooth at cask strength.

One of the good ones, and the first Japanese whiskey I had the pleasure of owning a bottle of rather than buying by the glass. What an investment! The bottle is too small as I'm afraid you're likely to just keep wanting more. Flavour wise it doesn't taste close to its 51% in terms of bite, but it's there in terms of flavour, everything I hoped for and more.
It was recommended to me as a gateway to Japan by a true connoisseur, dangerous advice, I'm now buying more. The massive boom in Japanese whiskeys that is gathering pace is pushing the price up, so strike while the iron is hot, if you can splash out a bit I'd also advise buying some of the Nikka aged bottles, they're vanishing fast and the prices is shooting up, once you've tried this you'll want more, best to buy before they become unaffordable.

I had this after the Nikka 'black' - which I preferred, finding it more complex. It's interesting being a Japenese cask strength, but I couldn't get many flavors, even with a drop o' water. quite smooth considering the a.b.v.

Very nice stuff- a bit on the sweet side for me. Maybe a little more American-style than Scottish (I know it's neither, of course- it just reminded me of a very good American corn whisky I had once). Still a lovely drink, and the packaging is so good it would make a wonderful gift for anyone with even a passing interest in whisky. Overall, not sure I'll be buying another one for myself, but definitely recommended as an experience :)

Not dissimilar to a big old fashioned "Highland bruiser"; Powerful in flavour with complex layers of toffee and dark fruit? Also a hint of smoke and a long finish, this is a very big flavoured whisky but also very well balanced, it's not cheap but is really good, it compares well with a number of fine Scottish offerings that fall in the same price bracket, it is well worth trying.

Beautifully presented to create an impression that this is something special. Tasting the whiskey confirms this, it's strong and smooth without a hint of harshness so a touch of water is the drinker's choice rather than a necessity to take the edge off.
Definitely a drink to be savoured, enjoyed and definitely not rushed
