Japanese Blended Whisky
Bottled By Nikka 70cl / 43%
Nikka Tailored is a super premium Japanese blended whisky.
This whisky is made up of single malts from Nikkas Miyagikyo and Yoichi distilleries and grain whisky distilled in Nikka's Coffey still.
Matured in mainly ex American oak casks and ex-sherry casks, the result is unmistakably Nikka.
Nose: Dried fruit and caramel sauce – raisins, sultanas and baked apples, drizzled with toffee and served on a polished oak plate. The fragrant fruity notes become waxy and the toffee becomes brown-sugar-dusted brioche with time in the glass.
Palate: Softer than expected from the nose, with fresher fruit notes at the front – apple and pear pies studded with sultanas. Spice builds, with nutmeg and freshly snapped cinnamon sticks joined by hints of clove and polished oak boards.
Finish: A burst of mint slowly fades to reveal linger cinnamon, oak and fresh apple.
Comment: A well-balanced combination of old wood and fresh fruit with spice notes connecting and joining the two.
