You will find these if you visit one of the Nikka bars in Japan. They use them to make impres­sive blends on your order. They released a very small and lim­ited release with each of the fla­vors in 18cl bot­tles the year 2002. Dont expect to find these today. There are six in total and all are listed here on Chwisgi! Why dont you check them out?

Colour: Pale gold. Nose: Very expressive but very malty and grainy, with big notes of bakers’ yeast, bread, soaked grains, yoghurt and vanilla crème. Hints of chicken bouillon as well – and, believe it or not, warm sake (a very particular yeastiness.) Mouth: Well, it’s not that dry I must say, rather fruity at first sip (apple juice), but it does get yeastier and more porridgy after a few seconds. Big maltiness as well, notes of lager beer this time, sake again (yeah, sure!)… Finish:Rather long, on a 50/50 mixture of beer and cider. Comments: I don’t think this is very pleasant as such but it may bring a good structure and a certain ‘assertiveness’ to a blend. In other words, an ‘anti-grain’ component. SGP:261 – 75 points.
