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.

In recent years, Japanese Whiskies have won several top prizes at the World Whisky Awards and have consistently scored higher than Scotch Whiskies in blind tastings. Talk about a student surpassing the master!
Japanese Single Malts, like Scotch, are double-distilled in pot stills. Grain Whiskies, on the other hand, are distilled in column stills.
It's not uncommon for Japanese Whisky to be aged in mizunara (Japanese oak) casks. Suntory conducted a research on how mizunara oak influences Whisky flavor and found out it adds coconut notes to it.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
