    Tart, soft, raisins, ripe fruits, spices.
    Slowly the wood notes.
    Balanced, quite round.

    Spicy. Nice.

  2. Timprivato scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    This Nikka blend is an value for money sensation. This very balanced blend, is made of selected Miyagikyo whisky's made of Coffey Malt and Grain.
    • Nose
      Smell of figs, pomegranates, spicy pomegranates and an touch of spices
    • Taste
      Extremely balanced wit an touch of grain, vanilla, biscuits with coffee and minerals
    • Finish
      Very pleasant finish wit an touch of dark chocolate, creamy peat, bitter passion fruit and some white pepper

  3. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Really not a bad malt, but very thin, a bit alcoholic and boring.
    • Nose
      Slightly alcoholic, apple brandy, some light pear, honey, some violets, orange, light malt
    • Taste
      Orange peel, with time and warmth comes more from the nose, violet, pear, but also the alcoholic, light malt ...
    • Finish
      Short to medium length, sweetness and malt and slight oak notes

  4. peatbogger scored this whisky 80 points Specialist

    Subtle and very tidy, but not a whopper in any sence.

    I received mine as a gift, thankfull for that, but after finishing it I will have to say that if I should spend my own money it would probably go towards the cheaper, higher abv and much more pleasing "Nikka from the barrel".
