Description

Nikka Days is a celebration of everyday whiskies. The blend achieves a beautiful balance between smooth grain whiskies and slightly peated malts, resulting in a light and refreshing dram.

Aroma

The initial impression offers a burst of fresh and fruity aromas. Think ripe orchard fruits like apple and melon, along with hints of orange blossom and vanilla. A delicate floral note might also be present, adding a touch of elegance. As you delve deeper, a subtle hint of smoke emerges, hinting at the inclusion of peated malts in the blend.

Palate

The medium-bodied character offers a smooth and easy-drinking experience. The initial taste is a delightful interplay of fruit and spice. Notes of apple, melon, and citrus dance on the palate, offering a refreshing sweetness. Vanilla emerges, adding a touch of creaminess. The subtle smokiness from the aroma translates to the palate, but in a very gentle way, providing a hint of complexity. A touch of peppery spice might also be present, adding a warming counterpoint.

Finish

The sweetness fades gradually, leaving a clean and refreshing finish. Hints of fruit and spice linger, along with a subtle whisper of smoke. The 40% ABV provides a gentle warmth that is approachable for a wide range of palates.
