First introduced in Japan in 1986, Nikka From The Barrel is an extremely complex blended whisky created to deliver full flavors and richness drawn from a blend of more than 100 different batches of malt and grain whisky produced at Nikka’s Yoichi and Miyagikyo distilleries.
The whiskies were aged in multiple types of ex-Bourbon barrels and puncheons, ex-sherry butts, refilled, recharred and remade hogsheads.
The higher proof helps to merge the wide array of flavor compounds, while the 3-6 months of additional aging at Nikka’s aging cellar ensures a perfect marriage of flavors to harmonize the liquid. The iconic bottle is designed to reflect “a small block of whisky” – embodying the rich, strong taste of the whisky within.
At 51.4% alcohol content, this whisky possesses a distinctive personality characterized by solidity, depth of taste and a richly expanding aroma.

Tasting Notes:

Aroma: slightly meaty, a little green at times, and toasty with ample wood. Lots of umami here, the aroma is classically Japanese

Palate: Nutty, with notes of coconut and honeycomb, it’s got loads of spices, well-seasoned wood, and a meaty, bacon-like edge. As it opens up on the palate, it reveals silky fruit, vanilla and a more bourbon-heavy, Westernized character, with an overall sweeter body.

Finish: bold and lingering, with some peppery notes emerging alongside a return of big, bold woodiness
