Nikka Tailored Premium Blended Japanese Whisky
Brought in to replace the discontinued Nikka 12 Year Old, The Nikka Tailored,is a premium blend of Japanese whisky, which is a worthy ambassador of the Japanese whisky production as well as Nikka’s expertise. Blended with precision and delicacy, this whisky is a blend primarily of malted barley from Miyagikyo in Honshū and Yoichi in Hokkaidō, along with Coffey Still grain. An excellent addition to the already fine range of whisky from Nikka.
NOSE: Smooth and round, the nose takes us into a fruity universe with apple, apricot and whitefleshed fruits. Strong presence of honey, as well as chocolate notes with orange candied peel aromas.
PALATE: Gourmet. The mouth offers a very interesting duality. On one side, a pastry style marked by vanilla and kouglof and, on the other, the bitterness that is detected with dark chocolate and citrus zest such as tangerine and orange.
FINISH: In the line of the mouth, the bitterness is counterbalanced by slightly toasted notes that reveal the coexistence of vanilla sweetness and fruity bitterness.
