Nikka From the Barrel
This award-winning Japanese blend is bursting with character. Fruity and spicy, it benefits from a drop of water to show its true class. It won top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards in 2007 and 2010.
The Perfect Measure
More from Nikka
I really like Suntory Toki and I got interested in finding another Japanese whiskey to compare. Not so easy as there are far too many variations produced by these Japanese distillers. I would get interested in a particular one - then found that exactely name was not at all available - just very similar names which are made for the big liquor retailers. So what was I really buying for $60! The Nikka whiskey is easy to get from many different sources - so seems more authentic to me. If I compare "Toki" to "Barrel": Barrel is much stronger in alcohol - hard to drink without dilution - actually horrible straight. Toki is great just on ice. I can only drink Barrel diluted about 1:1 and then on ice. Toki seems to have a smoothness, sweetness which I like. Diluted Barrel less so. The Barrel bottle (750lr) is stupid. The neck is so short it is impossible not to spill some when first pouring. The bottle is short and stubby - far too wide to get a sure grip. So Toki wins so far.
Explosion in every fibre of your body,,an experience
Fantastic blended whisky from Nikka, best with water or a single ice cube to tame the alcohol and bring out all the flavours. An oily custard cream. Enjoy!
Not for me. Not sure If I got a bad bottle because I was really looking forward to this one going on the reviews. The alcohol heat seems to overpower everything to the point where I cant enjoy the flavors. There is also zero finish.
