Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky 70cl
Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky has nothing to do with a certain caffeinated morning beverage, rather it takes its name from the double column still used to produce it, aptly-named a coffey still. The actual coffey still used to make this fantastic single grain was imported to Japan from Scotland, as Nikka has had authenticity under its belt from the get go. As you'd come to expect, Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky is top drawer stuff. Gorgeous amber in colour and delectably complex, it's aromatic with notes of toasty corn, vanilla, and a herbal tones of straw and hay. The palate opens up to a melange of fruity flavours, ranging from sweet melon to tangy pomelo, with an underlying warmth of tobacco and vanilla. The finish is zesty and satisfying, with a decent linger. Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky has all the makings of the perfect Japanese whiskey, with the signature Nikka edge.
