Product Description

This blended whisky was created as a memorial to Rita, a liquid love letter if you will, from the founder of Nikka to his Scottish wife Rita. In 2020 Nikka are celebrating 100 years since Rita and Taketsuru were married. This product was launched in 1962, it has since been produced without interruption with minimal changes to package and blend. Super Nikka contains malts from Miyagikyo and Yoichi, as well as Coffey Grain whiskies and it is aged on average 8 to 10 years, but some older whiskies are blended as well. It has delicious notes of dark chocolate, peat, honey, citrus with a roasted nut and honeycomb finish.

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.
