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.

Wonderful stuff , needs a smidge of water of course being barrel strength and 51.4% . Not as nice as the Hibiki 12 year old but cheaper so fine and depends what mood one is in .If you fancy a powerful but refined whisky this is for you .

My favourite of all the Nikka whiskeys there is something special about this even before you taste it.
The packaging and bottle are so good to look at that it takes pride of place front and centre of my collection.
From the barrel is the one I always use to show new comers to Japanese Whisky that you don't have to stick to Scotland for a lovely drink.

Absolutely wonderful whisky, sweet and not too peated (which I hate) without being too sickly. Definitely has tastes of toffee and fruitiness. Really smooth and highly recommended- a lovely whisky at a great price.

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 buy my husband a different whisky every Xmas to ring the changes, and this one is superb. It's expensive as it's only a 50cl bottle, but it's very good. A sweeter taste if you like that, and nothing like the Islay whisky that tastes of bandages dipped in TCP.

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.

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.
