Sweet fruits, vanilla & spice - rich and delicious.
Tasting Notes: Apple & pear with citrus, honey and nut flavours all perfectly combining with wonderful balance. The complex formula is created by blending more than 100 different batches of malt and grain whiskies. After blending, the whisky is filled into used barrels and matured for another few months. This "marriage" process harmonizes all components in the formula, resulting in a mellow taste. Bottling is controlled at 51.4% ABV, almost equivalent to 90 British proof, that Nikka blenders determined through repeated experiments to achieve the ideal taste profile.
Nikka From The Barrel is a blended whisky which was released in 1985. The development of this expression started with an aim to deliver full flavours and richness of whisky like "from the barrel", which only blenders can sniff and taste. The secret behind its gorgeous flavour is the unique combination of complex blending, higher ABV 51.4% and "marriage" process.
The iconic square bottle reflects its concept "a small block of whisky" and embodies the intense and rich flavours of the whisky inside. Long after its launch, this bottle is still timeless and recognized for its ultimate simplicity.
Nikka Whisky was founded by Masataka Taketsuru considered the father of Japanese whisky.
