Nikka Pure Malt White Review #Whisky #Nikka

This is an extremely affordable bottle of whisky (less than $20).  You can pick it up at most liquor stores in Japan.  I happen to get mine at an electronic store – Bic Camera.  This is a vatting of Nikka’s Yoichi distillery (Sapporo, Hokkaido) and Islay whiskies.

Nikka Pure Malt White

C: Copper

N: dusty wood floor, oak, floral, candies

P: strong alcohol heat, oak, strong initial bite then calms down quickly, spices, hint of vanilla, slightly numbing feeling, smoke, some kind of soap flavor that is distracting.

A very drinakble and interesting dram, especially at the price point.  If it was easier for me to get here in San Francisco it would be my daily dram or as I sometimes refer to it as the “table” whisky.
