Nikka Coffey Malt Whisky
Nikka Coffey Malt Whisky – Previously only released as part of single casks, Nikka decided to add their Coffey Malt to their core range in 2014. Distilled in a Coffey still normally used for grain whisky production, the malt is delightfully fruity and spicy.
Nose: Fresh and clean, with aromas of candied lemon peel and rich cake spices.
Palate: Robust and spicy, quite a dense mouthfeel and richly textured, with cinnamon and clove on the palate, and citrus-tinged freshness to lighten the load.
Finish: Harmonious blend of dense spices, rich oak, and lemon and orange notes. Delightful.
Comment: A fascinating experiment that more than passes the test. This is a delightfully fruity, spicy whisky with a refreshing aromatic zing.
What some of our whisky loving friends have said about Nikka Coffey Malt Whisky
Quote 1 “My first thought was “this is interesting” – it has a unique flavor profile. After a couple sittings with this bottle it quickly made it to my top 3. It almost has butterscotch notes, it’s spicy yet smooth and sweet. I’m normally a bourbon drinker but this one is fantastic.”
Quote 2 “Such a great and flavorful whisky. Very punchy and surprising on the nose, sweet and fruity on the palate with a creamy texture (lemon and orange?) and a nice warm and dry aftertaste with no bitterness at all. Far better than the typical Scottish Speyside you’ve got in the same price range…”
