The originality of this 100% malt expression lies in its unique distillation method. Malted barley is distilled in a Coffey still, a traditional continuous still which is normally used to produce grain whisky. Discover this whiskys extraordinary texture, which Nikka has specially developed for whisky aficionados.
Now a hugely welcome part of the core range, this whisky - made in Coffey stills at the Miyagikyo distillery - uses 100% malted barley as its base. The nose is all tinned peach, tropical fruit juice, and baked banana, with a surprising green celery note, coconut, and sherbet. The palate is silky, with some chocolate, biscuity oak, and orange blossom honey. Water brings those green notes forward to add freshness to the peach cobbler sweetness. The grain revolution builds.
