NIKKA ALL MALT
A fascinating whisky made with Yoichi, Miyagikyo and some 'grain' whisky that isn't really grain – it's malt whisky made in a Coffey still at Miyagikyo! This is really a vatted malt, or 'blended malt whisky', as we're supposed to call it these days.
Nose: Rich and full, with aromas of cinnamon and chocolate.
Taste: A plush palate of dark chocolate cake, candied orange peel and sweet spice, enlivened by a mild peppery backnote.
Finish: Lively and peppery, with more of that seductive citrus character.
