our tasting notes

Nose

Spicy and rich but well balanced. Floral tones and spiced oak mix imperceptibly with citrus fruits and vanilla hints.

Taste

Deep and full-bodied. Packed with oak-spices, pepper, cinnamon, and cloves alongside orange rind, dried fruits all balanced out with an almost-caramel sweetness that permeates throughout.

Finish

Long, warm, and fruity with a fading spiciness.

about

The award-winning From the Barrel blend features whiskies distilled from both the Miyagikyo and Yoichi distilleries. It is bottled at 51.4% making it cask-strength and features whiskies from a huge variety of casks, including bourbon barrels, sherry butts and refill hogsheads.

It is a blend of the highest quality, well-balanced, complex, warming, and smooth. It is also wonderfully presented in a square medicine-style bottle complete with simple grey label.  It does benefit from a little water if you want to get all the flavours out. 

From the Barrel  is also everything you want from a Japanese whisky. One expert has commented that “it smells of Japan… smells like old wooden Japanese houses.” We haven’t spent as long as Japan as her, but we wouldn’t disagree.
