NIKKA From the Barrel 51,4%
Blended Whisky, Japan, 50cl, Ref: 624E
Our experts reviews“ 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.
Nikka's iconic whisky, From The Barrel, is an extremely complex blended whisky created to deliver richness and full flavours. It dares. It captures the senses. It imposes its own style.
Sourcing actor, importer and exclusive distributor of a portfolio of international brands, La Maison du Whisky is, since 60 years a reference for whisky and spirit lovers. Thanks to our close relationships with producers and independent bottlers, we have access to limited editions and unique products we bring to market exclusively. Curious and creative, we are driven by our passion for products and our desire to constantly bring our clients the latest expressions through our own shops, our website whisky.fr and selected wine retail shops in France.

- 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 1918 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

Laphroaig 10 year old is undoubtedly one of the all time great malt whiskies from Scotland. Its idiosyncratic peaty character stands out...€45.90

Pas encore eu la chance de le goûter, mais les avis m'ont donné envie. Jolie bouteille épurée en tout cas

C'est un whisky puissant mais qu'il faut savoir apprécier.

Je ne suis pas particulièrement connaisseur mais la personne à qui était destiné ce whisky l'a vraiment apprécié. Seul bémol concernant la forme de la bouteille, le col de la bouteille est court, il est difficile de ne pas avoir un peu du précieux liquide qui coule le long de la bouteille lors du service.

corsé et subtil : c'est comme cela que j'aime le Japon
