No store at this point

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: Much more like Bourbon-y but not just Bourbon. A lot of vanilla as promised but also black tea, apple juice, stout (Guinness), cocoa powder (bitter) and not too ripe bananas. Goes beyond a simple Bourbon bomb. Mouth: Rich indeed, vanillic indeed, and woody too. Very woody in fact, the spirit having extracted loads of spicy components from the wood. Lactones, ginger, tannins (very tea-ish), white pepper, over-infused tea… Was that new oak? Finish: Not long but pretty tannic. Comments: Another one that really tastes like a ‘component’ and not like a ‘complete’ whisky. But it’s good! SGP:461 – 78 points.
