Blended with Japanese malt from Nikka's Yoichi and Miyagikyo distilleries, this is clean, fruity and very easy to drink.

Nikka Pure Malt Red Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    • Nose:

      Rich and fruity, with red berries and cherries and a touch of menthol and cassis.

    • Palate:

      Soft fruitiness, with strawberries the dominant note, accompanied by cherries and a touch of sweet spice.

    • Finish:

      The soft fruity notes continue.

    • Comment:

      Delicious, fruit-led whisky. Very refreshing.

  • Tasting Notes by Dr Whisky

    • Tasting notes:

      Bright and fruity. Candied peanuts. Tahini. Peaches and cream. "Still, trapped air, like going into a tent, or a cottage or shack that has been locked up for a few seasons." Time allows some herbaceous (grass, parsley) elements to emerge and water softens the brightness and brings out a touch of peat, roasted aubergine/eggplant or soil. "Becomes outdoorsy". Again, bright and fruity, butterscotch. Sugary black tea. Fresh and lively. Fills out with some earth and peat, but remains confection-ary. Slightly smoky in the toastiness at the end. Water really exaggerates the earthiness and it becomes a surprisingly chewy whisky.

    • Summary:

      Perfectly clean, fresh, summery malt. I loved the oscillation between candied orange and earthy smokiness. Wholly unique, but to offer some points of reference, Kristin finds it comparable with a features of Bell's blended whisky while I find it shares features with Rosebank, unpeated BenRiach and young Talisker. Love the packaging, too. "Spirity. Woody. Sweet. That's about it. Blend-ish. Did they pour caramel into this?" To each their own.
