While the category is rarely marketed, there are several outstanding grain whiskies that are worth seeking out. Nikka's is one, and even more unusual for being Japanese. Nikka have released several single cask Coffey distilled grain whiskies over the last few years. Now comes this larger scale offering, produced mainly from corn using their continuous Scottish-made Coffey stills at Miyagikyo. By all reports this is up there with the very best.
- 94.5 points - Jim Murray Whisky Bible “Almost a semi-liqueur, but with that indefinable whiskyness which sets it apart. The slight bitterness of the cask jolts the serenity of the oily sugars. From any part of the globe, does not come more soft or silky than this.”
Tasting Note: Brilliant gold. Scents of vanilla cream combined with sweet fruit and shortbread. Remains creamy throughout. Silky, almost oily delivery offers semi-sweet Irish pot still-like flavours: vanilla wafer, muesli, then added pepper to finish.
