A blend including whisky from Nikka's 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. The Nikka 12 Year old has been discontinued with the shortage of Japanese Aged whiskies, it has been replaced with the Nikka Tailored non age statement.
Punchy and spicy, with green peppercorns battling it out with red fruits, butterscotch and nutmeg. Precise and poised.
Rich, clean fruit – greengages and Granny Smith apples. Vibrant fruit-cake notes with a hint of toffee and sweet spice to smooth things out.
Very fresh despite the richness, this is a class act. Refreshing and moreish.
