A wonderful blend of the two Nikka single malts of Yoichi and Miyagikyo plus some grain whisky but all at least 12 years old.
Nose: Praline,honeycomb, juicy barley, grapey grain, aromatic spices (especially cinnamon) Danish pastries, crème brulee, fig rolls.
Palate: Big and juicy delivery with honey on cinnamon toast, sultana, raisin fudge, creamy oak, malty grain, honeycomb, vanilla custard, cocoa powder and some peppery smoke.
Finish: sweet aromatic spice, juicy grape and dried fruit, creamy vanilla oak, fudge and honeycomb and a touch of sooty smoke.
Wow what a wonderful whisky and this gives blends a good name and blows the likes of Chivas Regal 18 or Johnnie Walker 18 out the water. Sublimely crafted Japanese blend and no wonder they are sweeping up all the awards!
Best Japanese (12 years and under) at World Whiskies Awards 2018.
