This whisky is made by blending the well matured and aged malt and grain liquor, and then it is re-barrelled for another several months. Many re-stored whiskeys are adjusted to an alcohol level of about 40-45% by adding water before bottling, but this "From the Barrel" whisky minimises adding water and has an exceptional alcohol level of 51%, while delivering a rich and delicate aroma, in addition to the unique harmony taste created through the re-storage process. An intense and ambitious blend of more than 100 malt and grain whiskies, Nikka From The Barrel, launched in 1985, is offered this year in a black “silhouette” case. Highlighting the clean lines of the bottle, this case enhances the originality of the blended whiskey with its iconic design.

Recommended ways to drink this whisky:
1) "Highball" whisky and soda. Since the alcohol content is "51%", the ratio of whiskey and soda is recommended to be around [1: 3.5]. Of course, you can add more soda if you like.
2) On The Rocks. If you want to enjoy the richness of "51% alcohol", then on the rocks is the best way to drink this whisky. Or you can use crushed ice (whiskey mist). The aroma and taste are well balanced.
