Whisky reviews for Nikka Black

3 users have left 3 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 80.47 points.

  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    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

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

    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.

  4. Niels V did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    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).
