2 New Single Casks from Nikka

Post by Stefan Van Eycken, Tokyo
Nikka has just started selling two single casks exclusive to their webshop. They used to offer quite a few of these, but recently, it’s been pretty quiet on the single cask front. All the more reason to be happy with these two new offerings.

One is a 1999 Yoichi (bottled at 63%), the other a 1996 Miyagikyo (bottled at 62%) – both lightly-peated. It’s also clear that prices for these sort of releases keep rising across the board. Up until a year ago, these would have been several thousand yen cheaper; now, you need to shell out 12,960 and 16,200 yen respectively. Well, every silver lining has a cloud…

That's an easy question: no, they don't...
