Nikka From The Barrel Gift Pack Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Spicy and peppery, but there’s a richness behind it, with spicy oak and soft orange fruitiness, and soft vanilla notes from the bourbon cask.

    Palate: Grainy sweetness and candied orange peel, quite rich, accompanied by rich cinnamon and clove.

    Finish: Great balance, this really needs a little water to allow the flavours to unfurl.

    Comment: Characterful stuff, this whisky has plenty of personality, and shows a delightful balance between the spicy pepperiness and rich citrus fruit.

    Really like the whisky, great flavour!

    The small bottle is perfect for suitcases when working abroad. Over the years I've noticed the blend has certainly varied with a smoky undercurrent, sometimes more sugared almonds, usually bourbon notes, but always surprisingly excellent. Just don't expect a 'scotch' experience.

    An excellent slow sipping japanese blend. A higher alcohol volume really makes a difference, especially comparing to scottish blends.

    Not just superlative value for money, but a truly great whisky regardless of price. I like this one more each time I try it. It's now one of my all time faves.

    One of the best blends I ever had. And for this price it is a beater!

    An absolut must try among japanese beauties, for beginners and connoisseurs. This is basically a 12 y.o. blend. Incredibly generous and well balanced, oaky, smoky and fruity.Forget your regular scottish blend as your regular Bourbon, its replaces both !Scores from 95 to 97 /100 regarding diff. batches, yes ! I'm not kidding, this is great, and has a lot of YOICHI distillery whisky in it, for our pleasure !
