Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt (2020 Release) Reviews

Pineapple vanilla.. beer?

Nose: vanilla, beer? pineapple? 18/25

Taste: vanilla, caramel, hint of fruit? minimal. 20/25

Finish: Aftertaste similar to the smell of beer, with a hint of pineapple and flowers? 22/25

Overall: Pineapple beer?, very drinkable, strange flavor and nose 22/25

Total: 82/100
first off, on the nose, pineapple dosn't belong in anything other than maybe marzipan cake, but this just smells, strange, like someone tried to make a pineapple vanilla.. beer?
initial taste is very minimal, finish is odd, beer and pineapple leaves me confused?
confused is good, that means there's something here to learn, but pineapple bad universally, marked down primarily for my dislike of pineapple.
I think I need a bottle of this to figure it out better.
Very drinkable, at least this 30ml sample is.

Drop of water: pineapple beer gone, more wooden and floral? better this way but less interesting.

No, definitely not.

I don't like to talk down a whisky, but this is retailing at £60 and it's possibly my least favourite whisky after close to 10 years of drinking whisky. Like a very concentrated lager, very acquired taste.
