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 amber. Nose: Typical ‘Japanese’ peatiness, a combination of straight peat smoke, bitter oranges and polished leather. Very rich and very engaging. Develops more towards smoked fish and seashells, with a fair amount of spice (nutmeg and grated ginger). Gets pleasantly earthy at the end. Compact and flawless. Mouth: Explosively ‘Islay’. Big peat (even if it is not a ‘peat monster’), salt, orange marmalade, orange drops (and even icing sugar), Virginia tobacco, candy sugar. Once again, this is balanced and flawless. Finish: Medium-long and rather citrusy and salty. A little rooty/earthy. Comments: Another one that would certainly stand on its own feet. SGP:356 – 85 points.
