  • 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.

My first Japanese whisky and it won't be my last. The bottle and packaging are superb and it left me wondering if the whisky may be more style than substance but I couldn't be more wrong. The whisky has a fruity spicy taste that linger in the mouth with hints of cinnamon. Its a stronger whisky than I am used to but it was still very smooth. Would buy again but first I need to try some different brands, it may be a while before I buy another bottle of scotch!

I had always wanted to try Japanese whiskey and while this is still the only Japanese one I have tried it is now my new favourite. I am no connoisseur but it comes in a beautiful box and a wonderfully minimalist and modern bottle meaning it looks great on a shelf. enjoy

What a lovely whisky. Who knew Japanese and blended could taste so nice. It's a brilliant bottle to add some variety and interest to a collection.
