Produced by Nikka to add some competition to the world whisky stage and match the Suntory Ao release. The whisky is a blend of malts from Yoichi, Miyagikyo, and Ben Nevis distilleries. Nikka who own the Ben Nevis Distillery in Scotland are now utilising the delicious spirit produced there and using it in a few of their blends. Suntory recently produced the Suntory World Whisky by using whisky distilleries from different countries and blending them together. This has motivated Nikka to do the same and we think they have created a very nice whisky indeed. It’s Nikka’s first new whisky in six years. Bottled at 43% ABV.
Region: Japanese Whisky
Nose: Orchard fruits and tropical fruits are there, some subtle mint leaf and underlying spice.
