Nikka Whiskey From The Barrel is an exclusive blend from the Japanese whiskey brand that has yet to make its way into the American market.
The Japanese whiskey features a potent flavor that contains dried pear, vanilla oak and winter spices. The unique flavor profile, combined with the whiskey's robust 51.4% alcohol measure, ensures a powerful taste.
Founder Masataka Taketsuru has a family history of sake brewers, a degree in organic chemistry and bucket load of distillery experience under his belt, all of which led him to developing Japan's first whiskey for Kotobukiya. Needless to say, the man has expertise coming out of his ears, and his whiskey is certainly worth the effort it'll take to track down.
