Nikka Whisky From the Barrel continues to be one of the most popular Japanese whiskies, especially in Europe. This bottle was produced using matured malt and grain whisky, with the grain originating from the Miyagikyo distillery and the malt from Yoichi. The Nikka grain and the malts are mixed and then matured in a first-fill bourbon cask, creating a rich harmony between distinctly different whiskies. Bottled at 51.4% ABV, this whisky is characterized by solidity, depth, and a rich aroma.

Great whisky. Floral and very fruity. It just won Whisky of the Year by Whisky Advocate for 2018.

Amazing whiskey. 2018 best whiskey of year per Whisky Advocate! Their customer service is so good – you get many updates along the way, via phone or email. Plus when your whiskey arrives it comes with some gifts from Japan.

I have made Nikka from the Barrel my go-to whiskey because it has a wonderful flavor profile, and is very smooth despite the higher alcohol content. I have given it as a gift and received much gratitude for adding such a delightful Japanese whiskey to their collection.
