Facts about the whisky




single malt

A more bold profile compared to the Nikka Taketsuru and Nikka Miyagikyo with smoky and earthy flavours. While at the same time keeping a fruity character resembling a more scotch like flavour. This makes sense because it's the master distiller's first whisky, influenced by what he learned during his apprenticeship in Scotland. ๐ŸŒ‹๐Ÿฅƒ๐Ÿ‡
