The Nikka Tailored, a premium blend of the historical Japanese whisky maker, is a worthy ambassador of the Japanese knowhow and culture as well as Nikka’s expertise.
Blended with precision and delicacy, this whisky is a blend primarily of malted barley from Miyagikyo in Honshū and Yoichi in Hokkaidō, along with Coffey Still grain.
The result is a perfect symbol of balance, roundness and softness, so many adjectives that characterise Nikka.
Nose :Smooth and round, the nose takes us into a fruity universe with apple, apricot and whitefleshed fruits. Strong presence of honey, as well as chocolate notes with orange candied peel aromas.
Palate :Gourmet. The mouth offers a very interesting duality. On one side, a pastry style marked by vanilla and kouglof and, on the other, the bitterness that is detected with dark chocolate and citrus zest such as tangerine and orange.
Finish :In the line of the mouth, the bitterness is counterbalanced by slightly toasted notes that reveal the coexistence of vanilla sweetness and fruity bitterness.
