Member Reviews and Ratings of Nikka From The Barrel Whisky
Full bodied and smooth on the back end.
Powerful stuff but cut it with 20% water or have with a massive ice cube and its absolutely delicious
Incredibly tasty, good long aftertaste. Lightly smoked, naughty and strong. I am happy to have it in my home bar.
I love this whiskey!
Perfect caramel and smoke blended in a clean finish. I couldn’t be happier with this purchase.
Awesomely smooth with a terrific finish. Not easily available but thoroughly exciting to imbibe when it is...
Leave it in thr glass for 10min with a drop of water and you will see why is this dram is probably the best in its range.
Delicious sweet vanilla and some oak, notes of caramel, sweet citrus and a bit of spices with a smooth and long finish.
Awesome whisky winner of Whisky Advocate 2018
One of the best blends I have ever tasted.
Was a little strong on the nose but could have been my mood, put an ice cube in and a splash of sugar free ginger beer and wowee, the caramel and maple popped!
Not quite as smooth as Yamasaki, but a bit more complex. Delicious.
Reminds me of pecans and sweet salt! Great spring sipper!
Smooth but complex... different from the coffeys
Fruit and fruit and some more fruit. There are fruit everywhere :) Strong but not heavy. Very nice.
Awesome whisky. It starts with a surprising kick in your nose and finishes with a non ending prickling in your whole mouth. Highly recommended!
My first Japanese whisky, perfect taste, ideal daily drink
It is a very good, intense blended Japanese Whisky with a long & complex finish.
Very smooth and easy drinking
Full of flavours and has a really serious finish - a bit too blunt for my taste
As most Japanese whiskies tend to be rather sharp this certainly is no exception.
Sharp and hot on the throat that being said it is nice on a cold day sat by the fire!
Nice to have to add to the collection,
Nothing will ever compare to Irish whiskey.
Wonderful flavour ,rich and very slightly smoky a lovely 'sting' to the lips as this is 51.4% , very satisfying drink .
Spiced in aroma. Notes of wood and almond.
A combination of almond, toffee and coconut and a hint of milk-chocolate in flavour.
Finish: medium with fresh fruit.
Overall, strong and complex. It's worthy trying.
Full of flavours and very pleasant to serve to others. It almost doesn't matter what your preference is, this one is a real crowd pleaser in my experience
A little too oily for me, but worth a try and a REALLY cute bottle!
Take lots of water and enjoy :)
My first experience with Japanese whiskey, and I was pleasantly surprised. Full bodied, rich flavours and a smokey yet gentle touch. Hontou-ni arigatou gozaimasu!
Really nice whisky to a good price :)
Dejlig blød og kan ikke få nok
Harsh but also smooth. Really rich taste, worth a try. I always keep a bottle stashed.
Beware...this whiskey will and CAN sneak up on you...what remains in my bottle is set aside for that REALLY tough day... :)
Smokey but smooth.
this is great!
Drinkable but slightly harsh aftertaste
Strong and powerful taste, full of aromas kicking in at the first sip. Then the flavors all come in mouth and let your palate enjoy the smoky, oily and fruity taste.
it's a really good whisky with a lot of flavors, a bit too agressive (I prefer to soften it a bit with water) but the aromas in the end gives you a long oily finish that makes you want to take another sip !
