Nikka

Nikka Pure Malt White
Blended - Japan - 43.00%
7 Very different,utterly beguiling and cleverly constructed.

Nikka 34 Years Old
Blended - Japan - 43.00%
8 Big and complex. Slightly drying but avoids excessive woodiness.

Nikka All Malt 1989
Blended - Japan - 43.00%
7 An interesting idea, and it produces for Nikka a much sweeter style of whisky.

Nikka Black 8 Years Old
Single Malt - Japan - 40.00%
7 Easy-going, well-balanced. To be enjoyed as a refreshment with water and ice.

Nikka Coffey Grain
Single Grain - Japan - 45.00%
8 Once the funny off note has gone, we have a pleasant whisky, not over sweet. Refreshing spicy profile.

Nikka Coffey Grain 1995
Single Grain - Japan - 60.00%
Medium to full-bodied, but that slight mustiness diminishes its undoubted voluptuous charms.

Nikka Coffey Grain 1995 14 Years Old
Single Grain - Japan - 60.00%
7 A grainy profile enriched by fruity flavours. I'd happily try it chilled.

Nikka From the Barrel
Blended - Japan - 51.40%
Richness and power.

Nikka Pure Malt Black
Blended - Japan - 43.00%
7 A delicatessen whisky which quietly earns your respect.

Nikka Pure Malt Red
Blended - Japan - 43.00%
7 A classy and sophisticated all-rounder.

Nikka Single Coffey Malt
- Japan - 55.00%
7 Layers of seductive soft fruitiness. A malt made in a Coffey still? Why the hell not.

Nikka Single Coffey Malt
Single Malt - Japan - 55.00%
7 Layers of seductive soft fruitiness. A malt made in a Coffey still? Why the hell not!

Nikka Super
Blended - Japan - 43.00%
8 Easily drinkable. Very pleasant. Refreshing. Not especially complex.

Nikka Super Nikka Malt
Blended - Japan - 43.00%
7 A growling bear among a bunch of deer-like whiskies.This is a good thing. The mushroomy noteis one I associate with new Japanese whiskies.
