WHISKY 'FROM THE BARREL' NIKKA - 50CL DESCRIPTION

The Whisky "From The Barrel" Nikka is a creature of Masataka Taketsuru "visionary", which was founded in 1894 from an ancient family of producers of sake. In 1924 he became the father of the first Japanese whiskey. The distillery has a source of underground water, filtered by peat, the best to produce whiskey. The stills are still pot still enlivened high heat, according to a traditional method that most of the distilleries in Scotland has abandoned; with their onion-shaped, these stills produce an alcohol rich and full-bodied. The geographical location of the distillery, also, one kilometer from the sea, helps to give this whiskey a complex character, notes salty and slightly medicinal. Yoichi distillery pays special care in the selection of the barrels that are manufactured on the spot with the young oak, a practice increasingly common in Scotland. The Nikka From The Barrel is a whiskey full of character. The nose is balanced with floral notes, fresh fruits and spices. The palate is full bodied and incisive notes of spice and toffee with hints of caramel and vanilla. The finish is long and fruity with notes of oak and spice. One of the best blend in circulation, winner in its category at the World Whiskies Awards in 2007 and 2010.
