Nikka Pure Malt Red, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl
The Nikka Pure Malt Red is a Japanese blended malt whisky from the Nikka distilleries Yoichi and Miyagikyo.
Nose: Of the three Pure Malts, this is the fruity, clean and easy-going one. The nose is clean, fruity and quite nutty. It reminds us of that old American favourite – peanut butter and jelly on toast.
Palate: Great fruitiness, buttery and clean with hints of cut herbs, sugar and spice.
Finish: The finish is good, with wonderful balance and not a step wrong as it fades away gracefully on sweet, soft malt and fruit.
