The corporate name was later altered to The Nikka Whiskey Distilling Co. in 1952. The first Coffey still was imported from Scotland in 1963 and Nikka Whiskey has been producing top of the line and iconic Japanese Whiskey ever since.

Tasting Notes

Product Notes
This is an expression launched in 2020, with a refined formula and a new label design to represent the brand. While remaining a smooth and well-balanced blended malt, the formula further showcases an exquisite balance between elegant softness and deep complexity along with rich mouthfeel and smokiness. This is a signature label in honor of Nikka's founder Masataka Taketsuru, the first Japanese who mastered Whiskey-making in Scotland and brought this expertise back to Japan.
