$79.95

SKU: WH-4850

WHY: Often considered the Pepsi of Japanese whisky to Suntory’s Coke, Nikka is Japan’s second largest whisky producer, known for its rich and layered whiskies of finesse. Nikka's Pure Malt gives a fresh, fruity character, joined by more decadent flavors from the Sherry cask maturation. It's elegant, lithe, and it tastes expensive with its seamless balance and charm.

HOW: Nikka's two distilleries differ in their styles, with Yoichi producing a coastal style of whisky and Miyagikyo producing a classic Highland style. Using Oloroso Sherry butts, the Miyagikyo whiskies have a richness that melds seamlessly with the delicate pot-distilled spirit. The Pure Malt carries no age statement, but is generally a blend of whiskies ten years or older with a high percentage of Miyagikyo malt gives a fresh fruity character, joined by mature aromas of an important, sherry cask influence.

WHAT: Nikka was founded in 1940 by Masataka Taketsuru, after having overseen construction of Japan’s first whisky distillery: Yamazaki. Taketsuru was sent to Scotland in 1918 to learn about single malt production, and spent his time interning at the Hazelburn Distillery in Campbeltown. After working a ten year contract with Suntory, he left to build the Yoichi Distillery in 1934. Nikka owns and operates two distilleries: Yoichi Distillery on the island of Hokkaido, and the Miyagikyo Distillery in Sendai. In addition to single malt production, the Miyagikyo Distillery has a large Coffey column still used to make grain whisky for blending, as well as gin and vodka.

Wowwww!

It's my first time trying and it's awesome! At first, it smells and tastes too ordinary, but as you taste it more and more, you will realize the complexity and smoothness of it. I highly recommend.
