The Nikka Tailored Bottling Note
A fabulous Japanese blended whisky from Nikka, Tailored brings together a core of malted barley from the Miyagikyo and Yoichi distilleries, along with Coffey still grain whisky! A brilliant balance of sweet fruit and more bitter notes, the distillery suggests enjoying it alongside some dark chocolate, which we reckon sounds rather good.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Fresh stone fruit, with nectarine and dried apricot supported by waxy peels, touches of pithy citrus and a dusting of cocoa.
Palate: Initially sweet and buttery, with baked custard tarts balanced by orange marmalade and bitter dark chocolate.
Finish: Roasted coffee bean, fresh apple and vanilla pod linger.
