Overseas only, Japanese blended whisky.
La Maison du Whisky (LMdW), a whisky specialty store in Paris that is also Nikka’s distributor in Europe, unveiled it at Whisky Live Paris 2018 held in September 2018, and started selling it in France in November.
Released in November 2018.
A blend of grain malt from Miyagikyo and peated malt malt from Yoichi.
Nikka Days is a subtle blend of malt and grain whisky. Smooth, fruity, and sweet, this whisky entices connoisseurs with notes of white flowers, pears, and citrus fruits. The nose is a combination of grains, toffee, malt, roasted nuts and vanilla. The finish is a perfect balance of fruit and the malty side of Nikka Days. It is a whisky that can be enjoyed both straight and in cocktails.

It is so rich that it is hard to believe that the alcohol content is 40 degrees Celsius. Anyway, it is sweet without any peculiarity. Perhaps it’s because I know it’s sold in France, but it’s somehow elegantly sweet, smells like baked goods and caramel, and has just the right amount of sweetness with little alcohol.
This is a whiskey that should be enjoyed on the rocks or straight up to enjoy the aroma.
