  1. AngeloMerten scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    The whiskey has started promisingly and has been significantly reduced at the back. Too bad.
    Maybe that's because of the batch. Was my first "Nikka From The Barrel" and probably my last.

    Edit: I tried to experiment with water at the end ... Uffffff it becomes really cruel (nose: 78 points). Reminiscent of a chlorinated swimming pool. I prefer to leave it now in the toilet :)
    • Nose
      85 85
      The malt starts with a beautiful candied lemon peel. Then some honey, sultana and toffee.
      When warming up, a slight glue note (probably due to the grain content) appears, but this does not bother you.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Spicier than expected.
      Mineral with light fruitiness and sweet grain.
      There was a slight grain note on the nose, which can be tasted clearly on the tongue.
      The alcohol is palpable.
      The oak comes to the fore.
      Men's chocolate 80%.
      Get drier.
    • Finish
      79 79
      The tongue becomes slightly furry from the bitter note.
      The finish is not particularly long, but the bitterness lingers in the mouth for a while.
      Not nice.
