A blend including whisky from Nikka's two distilleries, Yoichi and Miyagikyo, The Nikka 12 is a well-balanced blend. There's green-apple freshness, rich fruitcake spiciness, butterscotch and some green-peppercorn punch. Another winner from Nikka.Tasting Notes (2)
- Fruit Cake
Producer's Tasting Notes
Old gold with orange hue.
Sleek and refined. A perfect balance of fruits, malted barley, beeswax and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), the first nose is very full. The nose then evolves on softer fruit and herbal notes (moss, lichen), a sign of great maturity, and lingers on citrus aromas (orange, lemon).
Both lively and serene. Dark chocolate provides the backbone of mouth-watering bitterness. On one end, the malted barley extends to earthier notes, while on the other, fresh fruits (apple, prunes, mirabelle and greengage plums, pear) are reminiscent of a plentiful harvest. With air, honeyed and floral notes (lilac, lilly of the valley) make their appearance.
Long, suave. At first, coconut milk and red berries (strawberry, raspberry) stretch out across the palate. In the back of the mouth, candied fruit (pineapple, clementine) accentuate the pleasant freshness, while the retro-olfaction is marked by tobacco and liquorice notes. The empty glass offers a glimpse at a variety of flowers.
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Punchy and spicy, with green peppercorns battling it out with red fruits, butterscotch and nutmeg. Precise and poised.
Rich, clean fruit – greengages and Granny Smith apples. Vibrant fruit-cake notes with a hint of toffee and sweet spice to smooth things out.
Very fresh despite the richness, this is a class act. Refreshing and moreish.
Beautifully balanced between tempting sweetness and refreshing fruit. Lovely stuff.

Amazing the shipping time was impeccable i couldn't believe the sevice nonetheless the product is hands down one of my favorites a top 5 easily.
I tried and was very good. The first the product test was very good and have special aromatic with Ivlike it too.
A must try !! Really amazing taste full of flavour.
Outrageously smooth, but at the expense of complexity. Felt empty on the palate – one-dimensional and, frankly, boring.
Very smooth, yet still has plenty of richness and complexity
