    So this evening to start a tasting session, we start with Nikka whisky. I've had the opportunity to have other offerings from Nikka with mixed results for my tastes. That said, let's see how this one tastes.

    Nose starts very light which is a good start for this warm day. Light aroma of rosewater followed by apricot jam. Faint aromas of pepper and just a tiny whiff of oak.

    Palate starts light and then builds with sweet jam filled pastries. Sugar cinnamon with some warmth as the sugar fades. The back end starts to introduce a sweet peppery smoke.

    The finish carries on where the palate left off with the sweet peppery smoke really building but then fades very quickly to some faint woodspice and the tiniest bit of oak. Finish is very short.

    This is a very hard to find bottle now, but well worth opening! The palate makes it so moorish that you’ll finish it shockingly quick.
    • Nose
      88 88
      The nose is light, floral and sweet mingles with pastry and dark spices like black cardamom and charred peppercorn. There’s a beach note of warm sand and polished beech wood there too.
    • Taste
      83 83
      The palate is bright and spicy, lively and still very sweet. Peat smoke mingles with malt sweets and a rich tobacco ash.
    • Finish
      85 85
      The finish is surprisingly rich but rather short-ish. The smoke gently rolls through the sweet pastry and spice with a gentle almost sherry note in there too. Maybe even a little coal oil in the fading embers.
