Nikka From The Barrel

50cl - 51.4% ABV

Nikka from the Barrel is Nikka’s flagship whisky and the best-selling whisky from Japan in Europe. The blend is made by Nikka’s team of skilled blenders and contains approximately 60% grain whisky and 40% malt whiskies, most of which come from Nikka’s distilleries – Miyagikyo and Yoichi. The whiskies are aged for an average of 10 years, expertly blended, then married for 3-6 months in barrels and bottled straight ‘from the barrel’. It is a deliciously, well-balanced whisky with notes of dried fruit, honey, coconut, winter spices, apple, smoke, and vanilla which is best served neat or over ice to showcase its flavours and richness.

Tasting Notes


Rich and fruity, with some peppery spice to liven things up. That delicate orange fruitiness is there along with some creaminess from the oak.


Big flavours on the palate; clove and cinnamon spice, malted honey and clean citrus notes. Water softens the flavours, bringing out the clean fruitiness at the expense of some of the toasty spice.


At full strength, this lasts a very long time, with the fruit and spice outlasting the oak.


A flag-bearer for whiskies from Japan, this has rightly received praise from all quarters for its big flavours and aromatic intensity.
