The Nikka All Malt, as the name suggests, is a blend of only malts, in this case Yoichi and Miyagikyo. It is a rather cheap bottle (around 35 EUR) and therefor, in my (not so) humble opinion, truly bang for your buck. I tried bottlings from 2009 and 2012 before. The nose is very soft and sweet. Malt, butterscotch and even mokatine. Some double baked bread. A liquid candy, so to speak. Quite creamy on the palate, with again a lot of sweetness in the guise of butterscotch and toffee, followed by honey and – again, and I do not mind at all – mokatine. Hint al almonds and baked banana. Very sweet indeed. Admittedly, the finish is terribly short… but next to mokatine I now also get some cold coffee and vanilla. Sweet, sweeter, sweetest. When I bought my first bottle of this in 2010, I paid only 23 EUR. Today, you must add 10 EUR to that, but I still think it is worth its money.
