92 points Wine Spectator: "Grain whisky isn't often bottled alone, but Nikka--which distills the spirit in an unusual Coffey-style still--has found success with this iteration, which has attracted ardent fans with its sweet flavors of toffee, nut and vanilla, undergirded by staunch oak. (10/31/19)"
This Grain Whisky is distilled in a "Coffey still," which is a very traditional and rare patent still Nikka imported from Scotland in 1963. The Coffey still produces a complex whisky with a mellow and sweet taste originating from the grain itself. Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky wafts of banana candy, tropical fruit, soft caramel notes, and an underlying note of sweet corn. On the palate, light vanilla, golden raisins, lemon zest, and crème brûlée notes come together in a flavor profile that is uncannily reminiscent of a fine, sleek bourbon.
