NIKKA Whisky "From the Barrel" - Special Edition Packaging “Silhouette” case

€45,00 EUR

  • Full body with aroma and flavour
  • An intense and ambitious blend of more than 100 malt and grain whiskies
  • Best selling series by Nikka
  • Special Edition packaging for gifting

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.

Nose : Fine, complex. Floral (lilac), fruity (apricot). Notes of spices (cloves) and leather.

Appearance : Old gold with golden reflections.

Palate : Powerful, firm. Spicy (pepper). Wooded (oak). Develops on ripe fruits (peach), caramelized apple and flowers (honeysuckle).

Finish : Long. Marine notes. Ripe fruit (plum, peach) against a background of woody-vanilla notes.

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.

Alcohol: 51%

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.

Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
