Jim Murray scored different batches of Pure Malt Black with 92 and 95 points respectively. This is a great dram, a blended malt made up of whisky from Nikka's Yoichi and Miyagikyo distilleries. Full of fruit, balanced oak, peat and toffee.

absolute perfect for my palate

Finished a wonderful meal (asparagus, chateaubriand steak) at our local gastropub with this whisky and a coffee. I've had Suntory whiskies before but never a Nikka. It is smooth, well-flavoured, complex on the palate. I'd recommend this - agree it reminded me of Penderyn in a good way.

Simple, bit smokey, bit dark chocolate, coffee, all mixed up in a wonderful taste. Definitely top quality at this pricing level.

This is a wonderful whisky! fruit,peat spice, and hints of coffee and dark chocolate open up when swallowed. oily and coats your tongue. i feel like a VIP when i drink this stuff, damn the Japs, this is top quality!

I love this one. Seems to be simple at the first sip to open up with every next. Too complex or me (positively) to name all the tastes and smells I can feel (I blame the lack of proper tasting training). In short: amazing for a blend. Or rather the perfect example that blends can be great, too. 8/10 for me.

Delicious, interesting and smooth. There's interesting tastes of bertie basset based treat's, a little saline. Well done Nikka.

I am drinking this right now.The nose is truly beautifulBags of glamourI just cannot stop sniffing itThe taste is immaculateTue obsession with Japanese whiskey is in full flowEvery whiskey I have purchased from Japan is unique and carries bags of intelligence.Recommend this thoroughly....

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!

This really is a wonderfully balanced blend, well worth a purchase. Fantastic flavours and a pleasure to drink.
