I recently tasted this Nikka All Malt for the first time at a nosing & tasting in Ghent called 'Battle of the Stunners'. Stunners are good malts that are available for less than 50 EUR per bottle. This one was even presented as an 'uberstunner', meaning less expensive than 25 EUR.

This bottle contains only malt whisky, but from two different production processes: pot still and Coffey still. So it's a blend of Malt Whisky. Make sense?

The nose is incredibly soft (probably too soft for many) and sweet. Kinda buttery and malty.

On the palate, the oiliness is obvious. But it's very clean and very sweet. A true dessert whisky if you ask me.

The finish, while rather short, is sweet again, but also reveals touches of vanilla, dried oak and coffee.

Above all, this Japanese whisky is sweet, sweet and sweeter still.

I found this one better than their 'Super' blend.

This is one of those whiskies that can be difficult to put down. Very drinkable and a true bargain.
