Nikka from The Barrel Whisky 500ml

An award win¬≠ning whisky from Japan, Nikka from The Bar¬≠rel won the top prize at the World Whisky Awards in 2007 and reclaimed it in 2010.

Tast­ing Notes from the Curator

On the nose, this prized Nikka from The Bar¬≠rel Whisky pro¬≠vides a good bal¬≠ance with its medi¬≠um bod¬≠i¬≠ness. Flow¬≠ers and fresh fruits with some spice and oak are promi¬≠nent. On the palate, it packs a punch. Tof¬≠fee, caramel, vanil¬≠la are evi¬≠dent upon taste. The fin¬≠ish is long and warm¬≠ing with a lit¬≠tle oak¬≠en spice. 


A gen¬≠er¬≠ous splash of still or sparkling water will help devel¬≠op the dif¬≠fer¬≠ent fla¬≠vors and tones, giv¬≠ing each a space to reveal them¬≠selves. At 51.4% AVB (Alco¬≠hol by vol¬≠ume), this whisky comes in at the stronger end of whiskies and can afford some dilu¬≠tion. Bear in mind that, though adding water will help bring out cer¬≠tain fla¬≠vors, it can dilute the over¬≠all expe¬≠ri¬≠ence of the fin¬≠ish. Add water in small incre¬≠ments to find the per¬≠fect balance. 

You may also try adding Gin¬≠ger Ale to make a Gin¬≠ger High¬≠ball. If you‚Äôre in it for the pure per¬≠fect serve, you may drink it neat or on the rocks, over ice. 

Refined Expres­sion

As Japan¬≠ese whisky has become more increas¬≠ing¬≠ly pop¬≠u¬≠lar, its set a stan¬≠dard to being a whisky of refined and unique expres¬≠sion. Among the many col¬≠lectible Japan¬≠ese labels out there, Nikka from The Bar¬≠rel Whisky always makes the top lists giv¬≠en its a small batch whisky, it is made by one of the biggest dis¬≠tillers in Japan and it is always pro¬≠duced with the high¬≠est con¬≠sid¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tion to quality. 

Storage Instructions

Store your bot¬≠tle upright in a cool, dark place, ide¬≠al¬≠ly between 15 and 20¬įC. Do not refrig¬≠er¬≠ate, as this liquor los¬≠es its aro¬≠ma and fla¬≠vor with cold. To main¬≠tain the moist¬≠ness of the cork and pre¬≠vent it from chip¬≠ping, occa¬≠sion¬≠al¬≠ly tilt your bot¬≠tle hor¬≠i¬≠zon¬≠tal¬≠ly two to three times, then restore it to the upright posi¬≠tion. Unopened bot¬≠tles can last for an indef¬≠i¬≠nite amount of time, but the clos¬≠er you get to the bot¬≠tom third of the bot¬≠tle, please con¬≠sume quick¬≠ly to pre¬≠vent oxi¬≠da¬≠tion and taste alteration.
