This new Blended Japanese whisky was launched earlier this year to fill some holes in Nikka's production gap.
Fromt the Producer: "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 visualize 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 our gratitude to the heritage and our will to advance our tradition."
Evan's tasting note:
Nose: Grain, custard, hints of earthy peat, white chocolate fudge, peeled apples and pears, dried mango and dried pinapple slices.
Palate: Citrus, honeydew melon, tart green apples, pineapple, black pepper, light smokey peat, new leather, grain cereals, oily and creamy with a hint of spice.
Finish: whispy peat smoke stays with you along with black pepper and light honeydew melon notes.
Comment: The elegance that you expect from Japanese Whisky as a whole with the light, ethereal peat that seems to be Nikka's signature. Lovely stuff.
