Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky

Country: Japan
Type: Japanese Grain Whisky
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 45%
Score: 93 points

One of the rare grain whisky bottlings from Japan, and well worth seeking out. This is distilled in a Coffey-style still, leading to an aromatic, light and fruity nose with hints of lemongrass and straw. The taste is peppery and clean, soft and well-blended with hints of lemongrass, brown sugar, and vanilla. The finish is subtle and slightly tart with a citrusy touch. Excellent!
