This limited-edition release is a "Revival" of the Super Nikka which was released in 1962. Founder Masataka Taketsuru created that blend as a tribute to his Scottish-born wife, Rita who passed away in 1961. This bottling, released in 2015, is a replica created from a found bottle of the original. Note: This was released in the European market and is not available in the U.S.

Tasting Notes

"Aside from grain notes, you'll get some citrus segments and barrel spices with a hint of peat smoke which lurks in the background the entire time you drink. As you continue to taste and smell the whisky, confectionery aromas like marshmallow and milk chocolate come through as well as a small amount of floral notes. As you'd expect in a blended whisky, the finish isn't very rich but shows a lot of a brightness on the finish. Fans of Highland Park whiskies should enjoy as a daily dram."
