The Twin Alps Whisky from the MARS distillery is a good value for money entry level blended whisky. It is full bodied with a oaky wood fragrance.
A very endearing, subtle malt with a strong whiff of peat, this is a curious but superb marriage of different Japanese malts.
Fresh, clean, initially not too smoky, then richer notes of peat and vanilla on the nose. Sweet, touches of toffee on the palate, quite chewy with a touch of coffee and light oak.
Nikka Pure Malt Red is a blend of Japanese whiskies primarily from Miyagikyo and Yoichi distilleries. The whisky is red with light sweet vanilla nose and a soft gentle taste.
Nikka from the Barrel is a blend of grain whisky from Miyagikyo distillery and malt from Yoichi distillery. Matured in first fill bourbon cask and a great introduction to Japanese whiskies.
