4 /5

Created in 2015 to celebrate 80 years of the house Nikka, the Nikka 12 years is an exception in the current portfolio Nikka has virtually stopped production expressions with age stated. To concoct this blend of 12 and celebrate its venerable age, home Nikka has assembled single malts distilled in Yoichi and Miyagikyo with Nikka Coffey Grain.La personality of this blend of 12 years due to the soft and vanilla sweetness of Nikka Coffey grain but is largely dominated by single malts used in its composition, it reminds Taketsuru 12 but with spicy more assertive and a hint of bitterness. The wide range of aromas of this assembly fruity and chocolatey in fact in any case a delicious whiskey.

A blended whisky introduced in 2014, Nikka Whiskys 80th anniversary. The honorable golden emblem designed by Masataka Taketsuru in 1940 and the asymmetry bottle design inspired by Kimono show the layers of tradition.

Nikka 12 Years

4 /5

The product of two distilleries (Yoichi and Miyagikyo), The Nikka 12 is a well-balanced blend. There's green-apple freshness, rich fruitcake spiciness, butterscotch and some green-peppercorn punch. Another winner from Nikka.
