In 1918, a young Japanese man with an ambition to make genuine whisky went alone to Scotland to unveil the secret of whisky making. He is Masataka Taketsuru, the founder of Nikka Whisky.
Nikka From The Barrel is a blended whisky created to deliver full flavours and richness of whisky “from barrels” which only blenders can sniff and taste. The iconic bottle is designed to reflect “a small block of whisky” – embodying the rich, strong taste of the whisky within.
From The Barrel is an extremely complex blended whisky bottled at 51.4% ABV. In order to deliver its richness and full flavours, the blended liquid goes into used barrels for another few months for “marriage” before it is bottled.
This whisky possesses a distinctive personality characterized by solidity, depth of taste and a richly expanding aroma.
