Not only do you get a 50cl bottle of the fantastic Nikka from the Barrel blended whisky, but it is accompanied by three of its pals; two minimalist square glasses, and one speed pourer. Whisky is a great experience when shared, and this looks like one waiting to happen.
The blend combines multiple types of malt and grain whisky that Nikka reserves and then marries in used casks for between 3 and 6 months to allow the elements to stabilise and harmonise. Bottled at 51.4% abv, this is a rich and strong blend that delivers flavour by the barrel.
Discover fruity and floral aromas on the nose, with a touch of oak arising. The palate is full-bodied with a kick of spice, caramel, and vanilla. The finish is long, and bursting with fresh fruit, toffee, and dried spices.
