    Perfect proof of how good a blend can be. A TOPPER in his genre. Really one of my favorites. Well 51.4 percentage but fits perfectly. Really a full whiskey. Topper !!!!

    At first you smell peach, lemon and glue (velpon). Later you smell more heavier flowers smells.
    Taste is soft, but quickly becomes spicy and peppery.
    Finish is short and reasonable on the surface, but a nice blend.

    Nikka "Whiskey from the barrel", 51.5% alc. No age
    Region: Honshu, Japan

    Special feature: Blended Malt

    Nose: Dry peat smoke, hazelnuts and a hint of dark fruits. Slightly mineral, some coast and salt. The dry smoke is above everything, the sweet fruit takes time to develop and then reminds of raspberries.

    Palate: Strong with a lot of malt and a dry mouthfeel, currants and herbs as well as some oak.

    Finish: Very long with lots of character and a dry oak note.

    Conclusion: Nice and strong he comes therefore. Good value for money.

    81/100 points (tasted 2014, approx. 30,00 €)
