There is nothing more suitable than a blended whisky to represent Nikka’s way of whisky making. The asymmetry design of the bottle is inspired by the neck of a “Kimono”, just as if the layers visualize all the passion and craftsmanship devoted in the history of Nikka. The honorable golden emblem engraved was designed by Masataka Taketsuru for his very first Nikka whisky bottle. Malty, soft and well-balanced, this expression portrays our gratitude to the heritage and our will to advance our tradition.
Colour : Old gold with orange.
Nose : A perfect balance of fruits, malted barley, beeswax and spices, a sign of great maturity, and citrus aromas.
Palate : Dark chocolate, the malted barley, fresh fruits (apple, mirabelle and greengage plums, pear), with air honeyed and floral notes.
