Nose: Complex spices, dried herbs, nuts and citrus.
Palate: A touch of golden syrup and honey, lemongrass, nougat and fragrant oak alongside hints of redcurrant and pot pourri.
Finish: More fragrant oak, ginger and clove.
Overall: Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? Nikka’s distilleries have always had plenty of tasty tricks up their sleeve though, of course.
