Released in November 2018.

 

The Bottle

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.

 

 

 

Nose Apples, savory sweetness of baked goods.
Taste Sweet like caramel, woody and spicy.
Aftertaste Bitter sweetness after a good amount of peat.

Our Take

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.
