Black Nikka Special
Tasted as part of Girl Whisky's Mystery Whisky Tasting Adventure this was one of three whiskies tasted, being the Black Nikka Blend.
The perfect blend of Nikka's proprietary Coffey grains, Black Nikka Special is known by the nickname "Bearded Black" and has been a fixture in the market since 1965.

smooth and subtle, gentle oak woodyness and touches of cereal
warming afterglow but not spicy
