Nikka From The Barrel Bottling Note

The award-winning Nikka Whisky From The Barrel blend is absolutely full of flavour. Bottled at 51.4% ABV. The blend combines both single malt and grain whisky from the Miyagikyo and Yoichi distilleries, which are then married in a huge variety of casks, including bourbon barrels, sherry butts and refill hogsheads. A huge depth of flavour in this stunning Japanese whisky. We can't recommend this enough.

Nikka Whisky From The Barrel Reviews

Very sweet and moreish

Not much on the nose to give an indication on the taste of this one, cut flowers and slight grassy scent. Very sweet on the tongue, brown sugar going to a more creamy butterscotch then to a punchy light burnt sugar sweetness with medium finish. Very sweet and moreish easily recognisable.

Just a tad disappointing.

Ok but somewhat disappointing.
The nose is disappointing. Oak and vanilla but nothing exceptional.
The palate is spicy with vanilla and fruit cake in abundance leading to a somewhat spicy finish which lingers a while but then fades.
A pleasant enough whiskey but not exceptional..

ok but not great

it's fine, but it's not worth the hype- better whisky for the price point (which aren't coloured and chill filtered)

A Revelation.

From an extremely biased (Scotch) whiskey drinker who would NEVER have bought Whiskey from any other country than Scotland or the USA..
My son bought me a bottle for Christmas, I was completely surprised and frankly blown away ,by the complexity and depth of flavour, from caramel, to a slight, peaty smokiness with (to my nose) citrus in between.
I drink it with a large cube of ice and a little water.
Highly recommended.

Not bad

Not a bad whisky for sure, but beyond the basic sweet and slightly smoky tones it leaves something to be desired. Still, a pretty decent whisky.

Excellent Whisky that isn’t for everyone

Very underrated. Folks who can’t handle 51 should avoid. If you’re curious though, I would pour it over a block of ice in a chilled glass to dilute. Excellent whisky, full bodied with a long after taste. Great sip for long winter nights.

Warming and long..sweet caramel with toffee delight...long finish of malt and fire and fudge!
Love it...difficult to compare with Scottish.. so subtlety different.

A nuanced whisky with tobacco and sweet spices

Nose: Sweet floral scents, spices, brown sugar, cocoa, acetone
Taste: First it hits you with an incredibly complex mix of fresh tobacco, leather and spices which one can mistake as smoky or peaty. Soon notes of dried fruits, vanilla and toffee take over. The musky lingering aftertaste with nutmeg and cinnamon is strong but pleasant.

Sweet, complex and punchy. I discover something new every time.
