Nikka Pure Malt Black

Nikka claims the Pure Malt Black has a high Yoichi content and a blod taste. Reasonably priced in 0.5l bottles with 43% vol. I already tasted the Red and White versions so let's see how this fares.

  • Nose: Fruity -  papaya!, some malt, smoke, black tea, a little bit peat
  • Mouth: Oily, butterscotch, generally a tad watery/weak
  • Finish: Malt, pepper, some fruit, medium long with lingering smoke 
Comment: A great nose but mouth and finish can't keep up. Still probably my favorite of the three. The smokiness combined with the fruit is very nice.
