Masataka overcame the sadness after her death by devoting himself to creating this ultimate blend.</p>
<p style="text-align: justify;">So impressed were the current masters at Nikka with the 1962 creation, they decided to do it all again. Replicating the flavour profile of the original 1962 Super Nikka release, the special "Revival" blend is composed of grain whisky with malt from Yoichi, lending it a heavier, slightly peatier style when compared to today's Super Nikka bottling.</p>
<p style="text-align: justify;">With dried herbs, complex spices and roasted almond on the nose, the palate boasts sweet honey, fragrant oak and a touch of golden syrup. More oak on the finish, which is long and crisp with a hint of baking spices.
<p style="text-align: justify;">Produced in strictly limited quantities, sample for yourself this excellent sipping whisky with a unique story.</p>
<p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>ABOUT THE DISTILLERY</strong></p>
<p style="text-align: justify;">The Nikka Whisky Co. was founded by Masataka Taketsuru, widely acknowledged as the father of Japanese whisky. Established in 1934 the company has two large distilleries and several blending and bottling plants and is now part of the Asahi Group. Nikka operates two Coffey stills (named after its inventor Aeneas Coffey) within the Miyagikyo distillery for the elaboration of its grain whiskies. Imported from Scotland in 1963, these old stills yield a distillate with more flavour and depth than modern column stills, imparting a distinct character that defines the house blends.</p>
