Whisky Reviews for Nikka 1998
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.10 points
- Vanilla, varnish, espresso martini, toffee, not bad, not very complex
Varnish, vanilla, bourbon, café au lait hazelnut, brioche, pastry.
Creamy, milky, coffee liqueur, alcohol very well integrated, pastry, buttered, brioche.
- It's very good, very easy to access. The complexity is clearly not at the rendezvous.
It's a Coffey malt but it looks like a grain.
Vanilla, wood, coconut. Well round.
A little apple. Very good but simple.
In the mouth, the profile is similar to that of the nose. We just have a touch of white pepper that adds to the initial bouquet.
The finish is peppery, round, vanilla. Long.
- The aroma is thick, sweet: sugar syrup, caramel, burnt sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, pepper, chocolate, fresh foliage, wood, gum, a little perfume (flower soap). With a drop of water is even sweeter (more confectionary, fruit). The taste is sweet, sated: spices (hot pepper, vanilla, cinnamon, nuts), bread, sweet confectionery, sweet fruit with sourness, wood with bitterness. With water more smooth, sweet. The aftertaste is sweet, rich, spicy: spices, toffee, condensed milk, candied fruits, wood. Pleasant, quite long. Conclusion . Very sweet. At first glance it is rough, but at the same time it is rich, sweet and tasty. I like these. Rating: 87 (n22t22f22b21).
