THE NIKKA 12 year old Of 43%

Blended Whisky, Japan, 70cl, Ref: 19773E

The first time you taste this new version, its rich and complex character could fool you into thinking that it was in fact a pure malt and not a blended whisky. This is due to the malted barley which represents the majority of the blend, and largely outweighs the corn. The aromas and flavours of this Nikka 12 year old are accentuated by its balanced nose, smooth palate and never-ending, intense finish.

Profile: with a good balance of fruit, malted barley, beeswax and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), dark chocolate gives a remarkable, generous, mouthwatering bitterness.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : burnished gold with orange tinges.
  • Nose : refined, smooth. The initial nose has plenty of character with a perfect balance of fruit, malted barley, beeswax, and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg). It then gently develops into fruity and herbaceous tones (moss, lichen) – proof of its great maturity. It lingers with notes of citrus fruit (lemon, orange).
  • Palate : lively and yet serene. Dark chocolate forms the backbone, giving the whisky a remarkable voluptuous, mouth-watering bitterness. Malted barley takes root in freshly turned soil, while abundant fresh fruit (apple, Mirabelle plums, greengage plums, pear) evokes abundant harvests. Once aerated, it becomes honeyed and floral (lilac, lily of the valley).
  • Overall : long, mellow. Initially, coconut milk and a handful of red fruit (strawberry, raspberry) cover the palate. The finish has a lovely fresh feeling that is accentuated by fruit cordials (pineapple, clementine). The retro-olfaction is characterised by notes of tobacco and liquorice. You can then contemplate the empty glass while breathing in its bouquet of mixed flowers.

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

Malgré ses notes florales et sa finesse, il manque d'une certaine maturité pour développer tout son potentiel.
