Pure Malt Black

Nikka Pure Malt Black

With its subtle balance of fruit and refined peat notes, the Nikka Pure Malt Black offers a rare complexity.
Its aromatic depth is the result of a selection of very different malt whiskies, combining the fruity elegance of Miyagikyo, and the smokier notes and strong character typical of Yoichi.
