Awards for Nikka Coffey Malt
Nikka Coffey Malt Details
Also from Nikka Branded Whisky
Whisky or Whiskey
What's in a name? Nikka Coffey Malt 12 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Japan. Were it from America it would be spelled Nikka Coffey Malt 12 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nikka Coffey Malt Bottling Note
Yeah, yeah, we know it's not really a single malt (because it was distilled in a Coffey column still, rather than a pot still). This is, however, a fantastic 12 year old limited release from Nikka. Jim Murray scored this an incredible 97 points!
The nose is pungent and rich. There are notes of nuts and espresso beans, berry fruits and dried peels. The palate is rich and full with notes of vanilla spice and thick nuts. A little bourbon and maramalade. The spice develops beautifully. The finish is long and full with chocolate and nut oils.
