Nikka Days, NAS, 40 %
This is a brand new blended whisky from Nikka. It is made from single malt and grain made at both of Nikka’s main distilleries, Yoichi and Miyagikyo. It is a slightly peated whisky. The official info can be found here.
The Nikka Days is expected to be released in Norway and Sweden shortly, but for now you have to order it from La Maison du Whisky at around € 40.
Nose: Soft maltiness. Vanilla and mild summer fruits. A touch of toasted oak.
Taste: Medium body and sweetness. White pepper. Bitter-ish notes of herbs and oak. Apples, vanilla and nuts. Toasted, almost burnt, oak.
Finish: Medium long finish. Almond paste, vanilla, and white pepper. Hint of mint in the end.
Comment: A fine blended whisky from Nikka, but I will remain faithful to the lovely Nikka From the Barrel.
