Nikka Coffey Malt Japanese Whiskey is the result of a unique distillation process in "Coffey" type column stills, which are generally used for grain whiskey production. As such, this exclusive 100% Coffey malt is categorized as a grain whiskey and offers a surprisingly rich texture with deep oaky notes. This Coffey Malt is Nikka's signature grain whiskey, which shows the beauty of the Coffey Stills. Distilled in a Coffey still generally used for grain whiskey production, the malt is delightfully fruity and spicy. Nikka Coffey Malt Whiskey has a gold color with lively and citrusy nose. It offers an aroma of lemon, pear, pepper, vanilla, and coffee with milk. It is creamy and gourmand on the palate with citrus aromatics (clementine, orange), coffee, praline, rum baba, vanilla cream, plum, and greengage. The finish is soft, with hints of prune, Mirabelle plum, licorice, and more fruit. This Japanese Whiskey pairs well with pastries, milk chocolate, caramel based desserts, or panettone. Enjoy it straight, on the rocks, or cocktails!
