|OVERVIEW||A storming example of what Japanese whisky is truly capable of. A previous batch was awarded a massive 95 points by Jim Murray in his Whisky Bible.|
Nose: Earthy and chocolately, with herbaceous notes and peatsmoke, as well as sweet fruit.
Palate: A winning combo of dark chocolate and dark berry fruit, along with toffee and vanilla notes, bolstered by some well-defined peat.
Finish: Rich and strong, the smoke and spice lasting longest.
Comment: Of Nikka’s three Pure Malt series, this is the ideal midpoint. The Red is all about the fruit; the White all about the peat; the Black is, perhaps, the best of both worlds.
