Type: Blended Malt
Nose: Vanilla, oak, raisins and forest fruits blends with peat, creating an elegant experience.
Palate: Spices, chilli, and black fruits are felt. A very vibrant palate.
Finish: Medium long, finishing with spice and lime.
Nikka Pure Malt Black is my favorite in Nikka Pure Malt Series. This one has a spectacular blend of fruits and peat. I really dig the combination.
Again, this bottle is not imported to the US and it is a 50cl as Nikka From The Barrel is in Europe.
This bottle sounds pretty simple but makes you feel a great balance of flavors throughout the experience. From the series, Red is fruit forward, White is peat dominated. We can say that Nikka Pure Malt Black is certainly a blend of both worlds.
The worst thing about this whisky can be the coloring they use.
