Description

There is nothing more suitable than a blended whisky to represent Nikka’s way of whisky making.

The asymmetry design of the bottle is inspired by the neck of a “Kimono”, just as if the layers visualise all the passion and craftsmanship devoted in the history of Nikka.

The honorable golden emblem engraved was designed by Masataka Taketsuru for his very first Nikka whisky bottle.

Malty, soft and well-balanced, this expression portrays gratitude to the heritage and the will to advance our tradition.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Sleek and refined. A perfect balance of fruits, malted barley, beeswax and spices, the first nose is very full. The nose then evolves on softer fruit and herbal notes, a sign of great maturity, and lingers on citrus aromas.

Palate: Both lively and serene. Dark chocolate provides the backbone of mouth-watering bitterness. On one end, the malted barley extends to earthier notes, while on the other, fresh fruits are reminiscent of a plentiful harvest.

Finish: Long, suave. At first, coconut milk and red berries stretch out across the palate. In the back of the mouth, candied fruit accentuate the pleasant freshness, while the retro-olfaction is marked by tobacco and liquorice notes.
