Coming in a stunning matte blue bottle, with musically inspired art and the title “Session” adorned across the label, this world blended whisky was created from spirit produced at the Yoichi and Miyagikyo distilleries, masterfully blended together with whisky from Scotland’s hugely famous Ben Nevis distillery.
The provenance of the liquid is hard to argue with, hailing from what could be classed as three of the best distilleries in the world today. If we combine that with the fact that Nikka have been experts at creating delectable, complex and well-balanced blends for decades now, the Session ticks all the boxes.
As Nikka’s first world blended whisky, it’s fitting that it should be a marriage of spirit from Japan and Scotland, 100 years on from the marriage of Nikka founder Mastataka Taketsuru, and his beloved Scottish wife, Rita Cowan. It’s a beautiful nod to those that made it all possible, while showcasing the company’s commitment to innovation and a thriving industry at the same time.
According to Nikka, we can expect fresh aromas of oranges and apples, combined with a sweetness and fragrance of malt and gentle vanillins on the nose. The palate will bring a smooth and creamy tongue feel, alongside a beautiful blend of light sweetness and the soft fruitiness of oak. The finish is said to be slightly bitter with slowly fading peat.
