4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.16 points

  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 69 points Connoisseur

    The nose is more than ok, but that is all one can say. There is also a
    Nikke Pure Malt Red, with malt from Miyagikyo as the main component. All Nikka
    Pure Malt bottlings are 50cl.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and drying, but not pleasant at all.

  3. hsmithjr scored this whisky 67 points Connoisseur

    This was a hard dram for me to finish.
    • Nose
      Sweet and woody.  Damp newspaper.  Rotten fruit.  Seafood shoppe.  Peat.
    • Taste
      A bit spicy.  More oak.  Medicinal (but not in a good way).  Vegetal. Smoke emerges late.  Sea salt.
    • Finish
      Medium long and spicy.  Charcoal.  Burnt wood.  Salty, but not in a good way.

  4. CrilleVBG scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    This is an ok whisky, no more.
    • Nose
      Strong nose, alcohol and a hint of smoke.
    • Taste
      Rather smooth, licorice and salt.
    • Finish
      Short finish, and a bitter, strange taste...
