Product Description

Super Nikka was launched back in 1962 by distillery owner Mr Taketsuru in tribute to his wife. This 2015 Revival version replicates the original style which is a bit peatier than today's current bottlings.

Nose: Rich honeycomb, aromatic spices, buttery french toast, chocolate, orange, hints of sweet smoke, leather, toffee & baked banana.

Palate: Sweet and spicy delivery with plenty of smoked Yoichi malt showing. Juicy sultana, rum & raisin fudge, crunchie bars, orange bitters, ripe figs in honey and all wrapped in a blanket of aromatic smoke.

Finish: Salty orange, rich sherry soaked dried fruit, singed waxy fruit, vanillin oak and that classic yoichi sooty smoke note.

A blend with real depth, richness and more importantly for this blend, sweet smoke. This gives plenty a blend a run for its money at twice the price of this super indeed Nikka.
