Insider knowledge: Nikka Pure Malt Black whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Japan. If distilled in America the spelling would be Nikka Pure Malt Black whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
This really is a wonderfully balanced blend, well worth a purchase. Fantastic flavours and a pleasure to drink.
If you like very well balanced with all obvious elements of smoke, peat, fruit, wood and sweet all working together perfectly then this is a beast. I could sniff this all day & sip this all night. It has an addictive nose (yes i do go to the cupboard and pull the cork sniff and put the cork back on many times with this one), beautiful taste and great long fade finish......I don't know what else can be asked for in a whisky?.........well 70cl instead of 50cl maybe!
