Nikka Pure Malt Red

The red version of the Nikka Pure Malt series with the White, Black and Red. The Red is said to have a high Miyagikyo content. Bottled at 43 % vol. in 0.5L bottles.

  • Nose: Some smoke and sherry, honey, honeyed herbal tea, damp moss
  • Mouth: Mild, oak, brown leaves (like the ones that lay around the streets in autumn), some vanilla
  • Finish: Mild, light smoke and sherry, sweet
Comment: Like the White the Red doesn't have an overly Japanese profile in my opinion but it is a lovely sweet drinkable malt none the less.
