  • Excerpt: There is a great balance here between sweet and savory, but the whisky lacks much in the way of depth to back that up, giving way to a relatively short, though perfectly pleasant, finish.

    "Nikkas entry-level whisky from Miyagikyo distillery. Light in body, yet full of flavour, this is an excellent introduction to Japanese whisky. Elegantly fruity with sherry-cask character." - The Whiskey Exchange

  • Nose:

    Melon, honey, wet cardboard and vanilla

  • Taste:

    Thin, sweet, some green young character, faintly vegetal. Some minor heat, vanilla and light fruity character.

  • Finish:

    Short, medium length, mildly doughy.

  • Overall:

    Overall, I found this young and generally unremarkable. It wasn't actively bad, but lacked a lot of positive character.
