Nikka Pure Malt Red is a blend of Japanese whiskies primarily from Miyagikyo and Yoichi distilleries, with Miyagikyo dominating in this expression. Nose: Initially a hint of green grass, a touch malty, with some fruit (oranges, marmalade, quinces) and a faint hint of peat. Palate: Cooked fruits and cereal, good attack. Finish: Medium-long, malty, and a touch of saltiness.
