Nikka From the Barrel is a product from the Japanese company, Nikka Whisky. The first Nikka whiskies were released in 1940, crafted by the father of Japanese whisky, Masataka Taketsuru, who studied whisky production first-hand in Scotland. The portfolio from this brand is full of gems, with Nikka From the Barrel in the front lines.

The unusual square bottle that Nikka From the Barrel is presented in is meant to offer consumers a "small block of whisky" but what is inside is anything but small. This complex blended whisky is a 100% Japanese product with clear Scottish influences. Made using both grain and malt whiskies, the depth of flavour that is packed into this square package is astounding. The name "From the Barrel" does not mean this release is barrel-proof, though. It clocks in at 51.4% alcohol per volume, which is the perfect level to offer boldness without overwhelming the palate.

Elegant and balanced, this is an excellent addition to the world of whiskies. It is perfect to enjoy on its own, either neat or on the rocks, but keep in mind that a splash of water can help open it up so that more flavours to come across on the palate. For its quality, complexity, and flavour, it is hard to beat the price.
