Whisky Reviews for Nikka Black

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.38 points

  1. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 79 points Expert Junior

    Appearance: Medium amber-orange.

    Nose: Some grain spirits, honey, caramel, orange, light spice and wood. Simple nose.

    Palate: Sweet honey, caramel, light wood, spirits, a bit tannic and spiky but not bad. Ok malt.

    Finish: Oak, pepper.

    With Water: Softer, mellower, less spiky.

    Overall: Simple but tasty and pretty good value. Not bad stuff—better than anything else in this shitty line.

  2. Andytka3 scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    Nose:-
    Milky chocolate, some floral and lemon zest, lightly peat and smoked
    bacon. Balance and easy. Refine nose for a blended whisky. Palate:- Syrupy on palate, full body but bland compare to his cousin
    Nikka Coffey Malt (Note 98). Approachable but slightly hollow on a fat
    structure.

    Finish:- Heavy on body but still smooth with spicy note at the back, warming. Steady and medium finish.
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

  3. Niels V did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    This is an OLD bottle of Nikka Black.
    It used to contain whiskies no younger then 8 years.
    They moved back to no-older then 5-years and re-branded the product to Black Nikka Clear.
    This is THE standard nikka blend, like Suntory`s Kakku (The bottle with the yellow label).
