Nikke Pure Malt Red, with malt from Miyagikyo as the main component. All Nikka
Pure Malt bottlings are 50cl.
The nose is a lot less sweet and offers the peat the spotlight. This
reminds me of some Port Ellen indeed, imagine that! Some vanilla and again juicy
fruit, just like the Pure Malt White. I get some oranges, red berries and
strawberries. Something of sweetened buttermilk on top. I quite like it.
It is very oily and sweet. Oh, oh. After the first swallow it goes south
very quicky. This is pure perfume. All the goodies from the nost return, but
are all drowned out by the soapy taste. What a pity.
The finish is long and drying, but not pleasant at all.
