Nikka | Super 70clEstablished in 1962, this famous Japanese blended whisky has been reinvented with this superb limited series. Notes of spices and aromatic plants are increasingly present on the nose. As for the palate, this new opus scores twice by offering the taster not one but two extremely different yet complimentary flavour paths. The new rich and remarkably complex Super Nikka could show a thing or two to many a single malt. Profile: smooth and honeyed (acacia, raspberry honey) and very long, almost ethereal, focusing on heady florals (peppered rose, peony). Alcohol 43% Volume.€70.00Read more
Nikka | Taketsuru Pure Malt 70clThe grand story of Nikka Japanese Whisky begins with the 'father of Japanese Whisky' Masataka Taketsuru. Born in 1894 into a Saké producing family, Taketsuru travelled to Scotland early in his career to learn the beguiling ways of distillation and blending. After many years of honing his craft, Taketsuru crafted Japan's first whisky at the Yamazaki distillery before establishing Nikka Whisky, a truly artisan and premium whisky house. The 12 Year Old from the Miyagikyo Distillery is a soft and luxuriant blended malt whisky that utilises the different natural environment at Miyagikyo with the use of steam heat distillation that results in a malt that is distinguished by a harmony of the aroma of aged casks with sweet hints of vanilla and gently peat. The soft taste is elegantly deepened by a sweet and tangy fruitiness. Alcohol 43% Volume.€55.17Read more
