Tailored Japanese Blended Whisky
“A man in a well-tailored suit will always shine brighter than a guy in an off-the-rack suit.” – Michael Kors, Fashion Designer
Similarly, a well-tailored Japanese whisky will always shine more brightly. Case in point: Nikka Tailored, which replaces the much-loved Nikka 12 Year Old Blended Whisky. Blended with precision, care and immense craftsmanship, this whisky contains primarily malted barley from Miyagikyo in Honshū and Yoichi in Hokkaidō, built over a base of Coffey Still grain whisky. The result is a gloriously focussed, rounded and seamless expression, which combines the best elements of these historic distilleries.
Beautifully fruity on the nose, it presents orchard fruits, apricots and peaches, all drizzled with honey and scattered with chocolate-coated orange peel. The palate is a trip to the bakery, with notes of almond croissant, panettone, brioche, pain au chocolat and hot cross buns, followed by green apples and pears supplied by the Miyagikyo malt and a slight whiff of peat from the Yoichi. We like the cut of this stylish whisky very much indeed.
The Nikka Whisky Co. was founded by Masataka Taketsuru, who is widely acknowledged as the father of Japanese whisky. Established in 1934 the company has two large distilleries and several blending and bottling plants, and it’s now part of the Asahi Group.
