Nikka Coffey Malt is distilled in a "Coffey still" - a rare patent imported to Japan from Scotland in the 1960s. So whilst it is produced from 100% malt in a single distillery, it is not technically a single malt whisky due to this distillation method
It is believed that these old Coffey stills yield a distillate with more flavour and depth than modern column stills, imparting a distinct character that defines the Nikka house blends.
The Nikka Coffey Malt is a rare 100% malt bottling that offers a surprisingly rich texture with deep oaky notes. On the nose, it is lively yet clean, with aromas of fresh lemony citrus and rich fruit cake spices. The spice remains evident on the palate, with enticing notes of coffee, cinnamon and clove and a richly textured mouthfeel. On the finish, the fruitiness again comes to the fore but with lemon and orange notes.
Delightfully fruity and spicy with a refreshing aromatic zing, this Japanese whisky is well worth exploring as an alternative to sweeter Scotch.
