Nikka's latest release for the European market is a whisky called Nikka Days, and it's now available from French whisky powerhouse Le Maison du Whisky.
Given that Nikka Days is not available in Japan, it occupies a space similar to that of Suntory's Toki. Nikka Days is described as being a "subtle blend of grain whiskies," so malt lovers may be disappointed. For those that are good with grain-forward whiskies, though, the €39 price point should be quite attractive in a market dominated by expensive Japanese whiskies.
Here are the tasting notes direct from the horse's mouth:
Whiskey Richard is the founder of nomunication.jp, and has been saying he has lived in Japan for ten years for the past four years. He enjoys drinking basically anything except straight-up Campari.
