Expert Senior Cubey666 Review note
25 Sep 2017 11:54 am
Cubey666 gave this whisky 78 points

Interesting nose, rather typical Japanse, and quite different from Scotch malts. Quite fruity and sweet in the nose.

The palate is quite clean and rather flat.

The finish is very short, and not much noteworthy tastes.

First sip or two are nice, but it is a on the taste and finish a bit too blank, making it a bit of a slightly boring dram. However, for 30€ in a French supermarket, a good price-quality ratio

https://whiskylovingpianist.wordpress.com/2017/06/26/mnc-pikka-nikka-2/

A blended malt that contains a high percentage of malt from Miyagikyo and the rest from Yoichi.

  • N: After three fairly average whiskies, we may finally be in business. Here we have a deeper fruity-malt profile with some feisty [bourbon>sherry] dunnage>fungal, which signifies to me signs of proper age – and low and behold, this contains malt that is around 10 years old. More info keeps coming in: its also saltyish with oily linseeds, some airfix paint, wet quill feathers! Well rounded overall though with a slightly flat=low abv.
  • T: Edgy arrival, some waxiness [mouthfeel], some bitterness, some sootiness [similar to the ‘Super’ in that way], oak, dusty caramel, dark cacao=chocolate,.. Generally a decent chewer.
  • F: Caramel bitter>sweet waxy oaky<malt.
  • C: Similarly priced to previous three [£55], though the best yet in terms of complexity, some form and some mouthfeel. Doesnt hold too well on returning sips however and the caramel becomes a bore.
