Whisky Reviews for Nikka 1988

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.00 points

  1. Willie JJ scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Worth it for the finish.
    • Nose
      Charming fruit sweeties, seasoned with iodine and salt. Tannic, pencil erasers, a little herbal and sweet smoke like burning cedar.
    • Taste
      Fruit-tastic, but hugely sweet like rum agricole. Yet soft despite the strength, like the best rum I never tasted.
    • Finish
      The palate seems a little tired (could be my palate), but the finish is long, sweet, beautifully, intensely, subtle and yet astonishingly herbal and amazing.
