Country: Japan

Producer: The Nikka Distilling Company Ltd.
Age: 21 Years
Alcohol: 43%
Characteristics: Made from the blending of malts from the two distilleries of Yoichi and Miyagikyo.
Colour: Old gold with a green highlight.
Flavour: Firm, lively. A mixture of almond paste, flowers ( iris, honeysuckle) citrus (lemon, orange) and salt, it is particularly powerful. It develops with vanilla, new oak, menthol and fresh tobacco notes. Finally, gentian gives it a welcome bitterness.
Taste: Sweet, balanced, spicy (clove, nutmeg, growing in intensity. Praline and nuts (almond, cashew nut) calm the harsh flavours. This gives way to ripe fruit (pear, apple), vanilla and exotic fruit (pineapple, persimmon). The citrus flavours are full of sweetness.
Finish: Long, tender. Languishing on freshly cut grass, star anis, and green liquorice. The peat is all but a memory. It continues with mocha, acacia honey and green menthol. Its salty character grows in intensity.
