The Nikka 12 Year Old Bottling Note

A fantastic 12 year old blended Japanese whisky from Nikka presented in a bottle that takes its design from the neckline of a kimono. Enjoy neat, over ice or in a classic highball.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Butterscotch, poached pears, toffee apples, nougat and nutmeg.

Palate: Buttery oak, rounded malt, a touch of leather and a hint of smoke.

Finish: Spicy, fruity, decent length with a little cocoa.

Nikka 12 Year Old Reviews

Simply amazing!

Full bodied, pleasant oak, rich, fruity (Apple), cream, vanilla and caramel with a touch of peat which gives it a salty/savory flavor. Flavor profile is quite similar to Highland Park 12 but richer in flavor and taste. Amazing for a blended whisky to be as rich and flavorful as a single malt Scotch. Easily blows away any blended scotch at 12 years old. Its even way better than Dewars 15 which is watery, spirity and lacks flavor and complexity. Had this for less than 5000 yen and absolutely worth it for that price. Too bad this whisky is overpriced outside of Japan.

A great blend

It’s a well rounded blend. Smooth, tasty and very drinkable. Would not buy again but once was definitely worth it.

Oh no! Not another great Japanese whisky!

Really!? What are they up to? I don't drink blended whisky (occasional exception for the Chivas Regal 18 yr old). Oscar (great guy, runs my favourite liquor store, insists on sharing his "enthusiasm" even at 10 a.m.) twisted my arm with a free sample. Bought a bottle straight off. There's a big dash of Yoichi in here so there is a nice, warming hint of peat. Not so much peat that it blots out the delightful tropical fruit though. Toasty, oaky, warm and creamy, butterscotch toffee and smooooooooooth. Honestly, if you didn't know, you'd never guess it was a blended whisky. This is a new permanent fixture in my collection.

Big Japanese whisky fan & this fits the mound. Tinges of apple on the nose, but forgetting the pomp, this tastes amazing. Great stuff, shall be getting a bottle.
