Must have NIKKA From the Barrel

NIKKA From the Barrel 51,4%

Japanese Blend, Japan 50cl Ref: 624

A must have LMDW

What a shock it was when we tasted this Nikka blend for the first time. It was in December 2000. Since then Nikka has entrusted us with distribution in France and Europe, and has become a leading brand of whisky. And Nikka from the Barrel, with its woody-vanilla, very mellow character, remains, in our eyes, the best blend of its generation. La Maison du Whisky’s top seller, despite its high alcohol content (51.4%), it is one of those rare whiskies, if not the only whisky, that can be equally well enjoyed neat, on ice or in a cocktail.

Produced from a blend of the Miyagikyo and Yoichi single malts and a single grain whisky, NIKKA FROM THE BARREL embodies the expertise of the distillery’s master blenders. Intense, round, and generous, this ambitious, powerful, controlled, high-alcohol blend is recognised for its originality. This is a bold whisky. It seizes you and seduces you. It asserts its own style.

The brand

The brand

Born into a family of sake producers in 1894, Masataka Taketsuru is considered to be the father of Japanese whisky. After training as a chemist, he began working for the Settsu Shuzo company, who sent him to Scotland in 1919 to carry out an apprenticeship. There he developed a passion for whisky and decided to dedicate his life to it. In 1934, he built Yoichi, his first distillery, on the island of Hokkaido. His growing success enabled him to open a second distillery near Sendai in 1969: Miyagikyo. The Nikka Whisky group creates its entire line of Japanese whiskies using single malts from these two distilleries. Official website
