Nose
Smoky. Peaty. Leafy. Minty. Menthol.
Palate
Good malt background. Piney. Intense. Complex.
Finish
Dry, resiny.
Comment
A whole sequence of flavours emerges in this vintage. These are flavours I have found before in Nikka whiskies, but they have not been especially evident elsewhere in this flight.

Dave Broom

77
Nose
Good rich, toffeed maltiness. Water brings out American oak and lemon, mink oil/dubbin, dry grass and cold tea. Becomes crisp and nutty.
Palate
Rounded, medium-sweet start. Crisper and nuttier later with smoke and light toasted oakiness on the back palate. Nice weight.
Finish
Dries suddenly leaving a little bitterness.
Comment
A sweet cask and a firm spirit more or less in harmony.
