Nikka Super Revival 43%
|Article:||Nikka Super Revival|
|Whisk(e)y type:||Blended Whisky|
|Producer:||The Nikka Whisky Distilling Co Ltd.|
|Flavour:||Concentrated, rich. At first, herbal (freshly cut grass, straw) and citrus notes are joined by liquorice and spices (ginger, cinnamon) evolving towards café latte notes. With time, aromatic plants (verbena, linden) accentuate this earthy and vegetal character.|
|Taste:||Abundant and full-bodied, the palate first exhibits two distinct profiles. One is very unctuous with honey notes ( acacia, raspberry honey) while the second is more ethereal, featuring heady flowers (peppered rose, peony). Slowly, vanilla and lactic (coconut) aromas appear, ending on star anise and a slight camphor note.|
|Finish:||Long, slightly tannic. Fine oak and cereal notes (green malt) give way to noble spices (saffron, ginger) and floral notes (heather, iris) in the empty glass.|
Original Tasting Notes.
Replicating the flavour of the original 1962 Super Nikka release, the special "Revival" blend is composed of the grain whisky with malt from Yoichi, lending it a heavier, slightly peatier style when compared to today´s Super Nikka bottling.
