'#1 Whisky of 2018'/94 points Whisky Advocate: "Notably balanced and elegant, the colorful palette of whiskies combines for tremendous depth of flavor. Soft, sweet butterscotch and orange peel meet poached pears and stone fruits. Earthiness appears as dried autumn leaves, coffee, old oak, and tobacco. Among the tangle of spices, tasters identified chili pepper, allspice, cloves, and universally adored its ginger note. Finally, wisps of smoke and sea salt. Overall, it feels generously malty, with the grain whisky lending broad sweetness and supple mouthfeel across the long finish."

94 points Wine Spectator: "The apogee of Japanese blending skill, combining more than 100 different whiskies from numerous cask types. Perfectly proofed, it offers sweet butterscotch and fruit, earthiness, spice and smoke, showcasing the elegance and balance for which Japan is rightfully renowned. (10/31/19)"

Distiller notes: "This is a blend of multiple types of malt and grain that Nikka reserves. Nikka From the Barrel was created to deliver full flavors and richness of whisky 'from barrels' which only blenders can sniff and taste. As the whisky contains so many characteristic components at a higher alcohol of 51.4%, it is essential to let the liquid 'marriage' in used casks for 3-6 months for it to stabilize and harmonize. The concept of the unique short squared bottle is 'a small lump of whisky', which perfectly visualizes the rich and strong taste of the whisky inside."
