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.

Fantastic Whisky. A must have for Japanese fans. Worth the money.

Great whisky, just be aware if you want the presentation box.

Great whisky but very disappointed that the bottle does come with presentation box. Product doesn’t mention that until you write to customer service who just say it’s not supplied if there isn’t a picture advertised. Very poor.

Really delicious....

...but at this price you’ll find waay better value from Scotland.

Overpriced and one-dimensional

Utterly uninspiring. Super smooth, but absolutely no “body” or complexity. Fresh green apple flavours, with a short, sweet finish.

For this price, I would expect something MUCH more interesting. Wouldn’t dream of buying this ever again. Shame because I love the Nikka distillery in general.

Surprising

A surprise, since it came to my hands as a gift of 50 years, straight from Japan!

Very nice... but only if you are willing to pay for the pleasure of trying it.

It's a really nice blend. I love every dram. Quite mellow, but not one dimensional. £95 worth? I don't know. To me, I can't find a characteristic to it's profile that makes it recognisable by taste. Maybe I haven't tried enough Nikka. I love all the Japanese whisks I've tried but it seems the price of them is increasing every time I buy a new bottle.

Looking on here, it seems like a good whisk for the price in relation to other Japanese offerings. Even with the inflated cost, I'd personally hunt down another a bottle the Yamazaki 12y. But at ~£100 a bottle, what great scotchs could you get for that...?

Hard to rate whisky so simply, but 4/5 in flavour in relation to sub £100 whiskys I've tried. Dock another point because you can find equally great offerings for £50-70, making this a very expensive choice.
