Nikka Coffey Malt

Product details: Original single grain whisky mainly distilled from corn in Coffey stills. This traditional corn-based distillation adds to Nikka Coffey Malt’s unusual character since most contemporary grain whiskies are made from wheat. The Coffey still is named after its inventor, Aeneas Coffey. The distillation is continuous, whereas the individual stills used in single malt whisky production require two separate distillations. Nikka has two Coffey stills at its Miyagikyo distillery, which are used to produce its single grain whiskies. Imported from Scotland in 1963, these old stills yield a very round spirit with a distinctive character that defines the Nikka blends.

Tasting note:
Palate: True to the nose, the palate offers a lively lift of citrus aromas (tangerine, orange) combined with appealing notes of coffee, praline, rum baba (Neapolitan rum cake) and vanilla ice cream. Notes of dried plums and mirabelle linger on the finish. A brief streak of licorice before the fruit takes over.
