Nikka All Malt is the result of a vatting of Yoichi and Miyagikyo single malts with a whisky made with 100% malted barley, and distilled in coffey stills.
Nose: Lively and mineral. Animal (leather and smoked meat) and lightly smoky (tobacco and ashy). Develops along a theme of fresh grass and ripe fruit (apple).
Palate: Rich and delicious. After a burst of rich, liqueur-like softness which is at odds with the liveliness of the nose, ripe fruit (sultanas) notes develop alongside an increasing iliness (sunflower oil).
Finish: Soft and licquoricey, with distinct notes of precious wood and spices (clove). Concentrated.
Contains whisky from different casks and from different years, and importantly, from a number of different Japanese distilleries. Blended Japanese whisky may contain a proportion of grain whiskies.
