  • 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.

Quite remarkable. Definitely not styled on a 'scotch whiskey' - this is very powerful and rich, after dinner sipping; perhaps with a nod towards a bourbon or even armagnac. Despite the strength its smooth enough to sip neat, with a finish that goes on and on. Sugared almonds, rich barley, the faintest hint of smoke, vanilla oak, damp fern or bracken.

At 50Cl and 6" tall its ideal to pack in your suitcase when working away.

My 3rd bottle. worth seeking out - I guess you will either love it or hate it, Just dont expect a Scotch Whiskey lookalike

July 2103 update: on 4th bottle - perhaps Nikka are cutting short maturity time because much more burn & sweetness, bourbon oak is very faint. Shame.

The smell is quite citrus like and floral, I found myself picking the glass up just for a sniff. The taste is very smooth even without a touch of water yet packs a nice punch with a great aftertaste, you can definitely taste the bourbon in this one which isn't a bad thing even though I am not really a bourbon drinker..

Being Scottish and enjoying a nice Scotch I thought I would venture into Japanese whisky with this one being the first, I can honestly say it won't be my last, going to order a Suntory of some sort once this bad boy runs out, which won't be long. A fine whisky I would highly recommend..

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.

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