Isn’t all whisky, well, from the barrel? Never mind that, just appreciate yet another awesome offering from Nikka. From the Barrel might lack smoke, but more than makes up for the fact with its rich tones of cinnamon, clove and spicy oak.

NIKKA FROM THE BARREL
VERY GOOD WHISKY

Very good, and worth the price
It doesn't live up to the insane hype, but it's great for the price.
The flavor profile is really focused on apples & korean pears, melon, etc. If you dilute it with water or ice, then that is amplified. Without dilution, you can notice a very tiny bit of sherry and oak on the finish sometimes; sometimes not.
Best to open it and let it oxidize for a solid hour before indulging. Needs lots of time to breath.
