Whisky Reviews for Nikka 2003 SMWS G12.1

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.82 points

  1. sengjc scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Tasted today at a local SMWS affiliated whisky bar - a remarkable effort for such a young whisky.

  2. ARDBERG did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS note:

    Aromas of apple purée and coconut milk soon revealed a fresh oak
    backbone and vanilla pods in a sugar bowl. Subtle rancio and musky notes
    floated along while the sugar became more rich, dark and heady.

    The taste was very sweet with powerful vanilla and banana, moving to a chalky and slightly drying finish.

    Water saw apple turnovers dusted with icing sugar as a curious coconut
    and peach smoothie was whizzed up in the background. Wonderful oakiness
    (“wrung out staves”), banana chips, Campinos, cloves and banana toffee
    brought this rollercoaster of sweetness home.
