A really superior blend of Japanese Whiskey from their own distilleries that delivers notes of pastry, fruit, and chocolate all around.

Masataka Taketsuru was the son of a Sake producer. As a young man he was sent to Scotland to learn the secrets of Whisky. He did… but he also learned about love. He met Rita Cowen — a Scottish lass whom he married and took back to Japan with him. In 1934, he founded Yoichi Distillery in southern Hokkaido on a spot surrounded on three sides by mountains — a terrain and climate very similar to the Scottish Highlands. Growing to become the second largest producer of Whiskies in Japan, they opened a second distillery — Mihagikyo — in 1969.

First off, we love the decanter and presentation box for The Nikka Tailored — nothing but modern class. The Spirit inside the lovely bottle is equally impressive. It is a blend of three Whiskies from their two distilleries. There is Single Malt from both the Yoshi and Mihagikyo distilleries, plus a wee bit of grain Spirit from Mihagikyo. The blend is perfectly balanced and bottled at a very nice 43% ABV.

Appearance / Color
Amber Bronze

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is fruit-forward with apples and apricots leading the way, followed by peach, orange zest, and a hint of milk chocolate.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
On the palate the first thing we thought of was almond bear claw followed by more orange zest, vanilla, orchard fruits, and dark chocolate.

Finish
The finish is medium-to-long with a nice balance of toasted oak with lingering fruit.

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 Highball brought Japanese Whisky back to life. Aside from some attention from overseas, Japanese Whisky consumption domestically was very low during the better part of the early 2000s. It wasn’t until 2008, when Suntory launched the Highball campaign featuring their Kakubin Whisky that things kicked off.
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 Whisky is connected both to Scotch and Bourbon. It’s a Scotch-style Spirit that’s matured in climates similar to Kentucky’s.
Japan is the second biggest producer of Single Malt Whisky in the world.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan are Nikka and Suntory, major rivals.
