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. The Nikka "From The Barrel" was unavailable for many years in the U.S. due to the fact that it was bottled in a 500ml format, which isn't allowed for whisky in the states. Winner of numerous "Whisky of the Year" awards, the bolder high proof character and rich, Sherry-laden flavors of candied ginger and cakebread have made it a huge hit with high-octane whisky drinkers.

HOW: Using a combination of single malts from the Yoichi and Miyagikyo distilleries, as well as grain whisky from the famed Coffey still at Miyagikyo, the whiskies are blended into a recipe and matured further in a large vat, then bottled at a higher proof than normal. 

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.

Smooth and Tasty

I bought a small bottle of Nikka from the Barrel several years ago from the U.K. and I paid just as much to ship it as the bottle cost me. I had been very stingy with that whisky, but now that it’s available in the US, I got a regular sized bottle from Mission, which is my favorite place to buy whisky. Good prices, even with the shipping. Nikka from the Barrel is one of my favs. I am very happy to be able to buy this whisky here, and now I won’t hesitate to share it with my friends.

A spicy treat

If you like your whisky to really warm your senses on a cold winter night, this bottle may just do that for you. Up front, you can really taste the cloves and all spice that remind me of a fall evening wrapped up by the fire. This is not a summer drink. It's not light on flavor, and not meant to be had on a hot summer day spent outside. You really want to be comfortable in a warm blanket or snuggling next to someone when enjoying this. The blenders of Nikka really brought together their best winter flavors for this one. Spices will kick you in the mouth, and you'll spend a good minute trying to figure out which ones are featured, or if they're just all bunched up together.
