  1. Malzbrenner scored this whisky 86 points Photo Moderator

    A blend without age by Nikka with a crisp 51.4% vol.
    For the price around 30 € in early 2020 a clear recommendation to buy.

      Sweet, fruity, spicy. Some eucalyptus, red currant, wood, coffee with milk, honey
      Softer with a little water.

      Medium-long finish with sweetness and spice on the palate and some mint.

    Whoa, pretty one-dimensional blend, featuring forceful abv but little else apart from an obscure perfumey note. Nah, not my cup of tea.

  5. Buecherwurm scored this whisky 65 points Expert Junior

    I miss the wealth of experience of several hundred tasted whiskeys that some veteran members can use. Furthermore, I think that there is a time, place and the right people for sut as every whiskey.
    I've noticed a whiskey extremely unpleasant until now and that's the Nikka from the barrel. In the big good rating and bought for a fair € 28, but completely failed.
    Maybe it was because of my batch, but it's extremely adhesive, nail polish remover and some fuel. This Gruch resigned only after much water and time.
    Personally, I really can not understand how to give this "drink" more than 65 points.
