Refreshing no-nonsense Nikka Whisky
 
Nikka is the founding father of the Japanese Whisky production, and we expect nothing less than perfection from them. And Nikka seems to deliver every time. Established in 1934 by the legendary Masataka Taketsuru (right after he helped establishing its rival Suntory), Nikka has been producing premium bottles without breaking a sweat. Their modus operandi is blending knowledge and tradition of the East and the West, and this bottle is the sum of all years.
 
Nikka Days Blended Whisky is a West-only expression that’s refreshingly no-B.S. The name is straightforward, the presentation is minimalistic, and all that matters is the smooth and fruity profile that can impress both neat or in a ritzy cocktail. Its approachability will enchant amateurs, while its creamy, almost Scottish character will please connoisseurs. The subtle blend of grain Whiskies is a welcome addition to your home bar during the Whisky shortage in Japan. But it’s more than just a consolation prize. It’s Nikka, after all.

It has a sweet yet smoky flavor to start and the caramel notes dissipate into to smooth short finish

Slight iodine on the nose. Carmel, vanilla, and fruity flavors. So so subtle, and on the sweet side. Wish the flavors came out more, but not terrible.

Fruity nose. Light spice. Sweet. Zest. Soft.
 
Scott
Scott,
Wow! This is one of those whiskeys you think is just okay when served neat, but over the rocks the sweeter, citrus profiles explode and becomes absolutely delicious like a citrus pound cake. Yummy!

Antti,
It is an outstanding, delicate, Japanese Blended Whisky with an aromatic birth; while a rich life leads to a short & dry death with hints of coffee, vanilla, malt & apricots.

Viyan,
In a glencairn glass without adding water, it's a forgettable whiskey. On the nose, it comes off as nail polish with undertones of caramel. It lacks body. However, when you open it up with a few drops of water, the harsh alcohol smell disappears, and you're left with more caramel notes. On the palate, the citrus flavor (Especially orange) comes out. Unfortunately, for me, I don't get much more and the finish is short and still forgettable. In my opinion, I would not pay more than $25 for this bottle, but in all honesty, skip it altogether.

Initial nosing has a fresh bloom of lemon, apple, pear, and bit of orange. Tasting reveals a smooth flavor filled with some vanilla, caramel, apple, lemon cake, citrus and a bit of malt. Nice finish. Very enjoyable.
