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.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Medium-body with good balance. There are notes of cut flowers and fresh fruits, spice and a little oak.

Palate: Full-bodied and punchy. There is plenty of winter spice and toffee, a little caramel and vanilla and a good mouthful of fruit.

Finish: Long, warming and fruity with a little oaken spice.

Nikka Whisky From The Barrel Reviews

very good

very smooth for 51 grad, thin pleasant flavors, 1st is nice oak then some fruits very thin, like expensive anf not obsessive eau de toilette. Good to try . Will i buy it again - no, it's not stuff u want to buy again and again like Yamazaki 12, or bunnahabhain 12 or boondocks rye.

Good japanese blend

Always good bang for buck. Similar to an entry Irish whiskey and American bourbon. Other batch variations are more like Speyside and Highland whiskies.

Great Japanese blend

There is some variety in the Nikka from the barrel batches. Roughly there are 3 variations, a more grainy American Bourbon x Irish style that is more vanilla nutty geared. A fuller Speyside style of cinnamon fruity. And more of a dirty Highland x Island style with cherry and peaty influences which I assume has a higher Ben Nevis content.

Nose: vanilla, nail polish, fresh saw dust, new oak, creamy milky, orange juice, coffee beans and maybe some pot still species.

Taste: Vanilla, creamy milky like an Irish Middleton whiskey, orange juice, mocha, dried fruit, new oak, oily, coppery.

Finish: medium long, new oak, vanilla, cream, grainy, dry and dusty, some orange.

Very nice and simple Irish whiskey/American bourbon style similar to Nikka coffee grain whisky but fuller.

Excellent all round

Superb Japanese blend. Can see it being polarising due to the 51.4% ABV but I thoroughly enjoyed it neat. Incredibly smooth. At this price, there isn’t another Japanese whisky that comes close.

Almost great.

Rich, warm, full body, complex & utterly satisfying. why only 4 stars then? it would have been 5 stars if there was no grain whisky in it. the slight acetone note takes away 1 star imo.

If this was a malt whisky only it would be a perfect dram, 5 stars no doubt.

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)

Very enjoyable

Very pleasant, plenty of flavour. Great introduction to Japanese whiskey

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.
