This Single Malt from the Miyagikyo distillery has finished its maturation in casks that contained brandy. Apples are a strong symbol of Nikka's history, they are often associated to the relationship between Rita and Masataka, when she encouraged him to start his activity by selling apple juice and jam while the first whiskies were ageing in the cellars.

Tasting notes

  • Colour: gold with green reflections.
  • Nose: Greedy and complex. Subtle blend of fruity (apple), vanilla, honeyed (acacia) and finely herbaceous (sage, verbena) notes, the first nose is a model of balance. Deep, it evolves on notes of applesauce and baked apples. It should be noted that the perfectly integrated woodiness brings numerous spices including ginger and cinnamon.
  • Palate: both unctuous and lively, the attack in the mouth restores all the nuances of the aromatic palette to within a point. Remarkably malty, the mid-palate shows a remarkable freshness of expression. As time goes by, the taste palette becomes more and more exotic (pineapple, lychee, kiwi) while acacia honey spreads all around the palate.
  • Finish: Long and greedy. Very finely salty, the beginning of the finish takes us irremediably towards herbaceous (cut hay) and malty regions whose tannins delicately shrink the taste buds. On the aftertaste, infusion notes (rosemary, mint, lime blossom) add a floral dimension. The empty glass is empyreumatic (oak, cyprus, pine).
