  4. schengel10 scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    Somewhat strange, but a decent whiskey!
    With 52,00 € unfortunately too expensive!
    • Nose
      unusually fruity, (bourbon) vanilla, cereals, seasoning;
    • Taste
      powerful onset, lots of vanilla (like straight bourbon), fruity (apricots), soft, oily and well balanced;
    • Finish
      mid-length fruity finish;

  5. Docmacwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Jim Murray has awarded 96 points to the Nikka Coffey Malt. "Not quite the genius of the 12 year old. But still one of the most tactile and sensual whiskies on the world whisky stage today" Pure matter of taste... ISC Gold 2015 & 2017, WWA Silver 2017, Japanese Whisky of the Year - 2018 Whisky Bible. This series will be discontinued by Nikka in 2019!

  6. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Nose: not as fruity fresh as the grain. Subtle oak, slightly dusty, licorice and light fruit in the background. Mouth: mild, soft, fruity, velvety, some wood. Finish: medium length, some wood, also some cardboard, slight fruit notes. Conclusion: that is how many German single malts taste. Somehow Malt and Coffey Still do not fit together so much, that seems a bit pointless. The grain was more expressive.

  7. Kaleva scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Very interesting whisky, the nose is very nice and exotic. Easy-drinking, light, sweet. Reasonable pricing makes this bottle quite a good purchase.
    • Nose
      Sweet, banana, pear, vanilla, baba au rhum, caramel
    • Taste
      Sweet, vanilla, butterscotch, dried fruits
    • Finish
      Short, sweet, spicy

    • Nose
      82 82
      Oranges, apples and pears. Add chocolate and a touch of oak. Very round.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Soft, creamy. Chocolate. The fruits are now very interwoven. Milk coffee in the dessert.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Medium. Sweet. Discreetly spicy.

  10. Hupsende Hippie scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    A very fruity, sweet whisky with delicious aromas that you can keep on smelling for minutes. I think this is too sweet for some, but I think it's delicious. My girlfriend, who loves rum more, too!
    • Nose
      First some glue. Then pear, a little lime and chocolate raisins.
    • Taste
      Soft milk chocolate, blood orange, ripe and deep sweet orange / yellow fruits (mango / peach), little speculaas spices.
    • Finish
      Long aftertaste. Caramel, liquorice, orange. The sweetness lingers for a long time.
