Nikka Coffey Malt Bottling Note

While most distilleries use their Coffey stills only to make grain whisky, Nikka use the two Coffey stills at their Miyagikyo distillery to create malt whisky too. The Nikka Coffey Malt Whisky was introduced to their selection of expressions in 2014. Plenty rich and flavoursome, it's a wonderful addition to Nikka's fantastic range.

Nikka Coffey Malt Whisky Reviews

Nikka’s best work

Great whisky flavorful and tasty. Loved the Nikki Grain but this takes it to a higher level!

This is a fantastic Whisky! Its amazing how many of the reviewers show their total ignorance when reviewing this whisky, ie: 'Coffee taste becomes more prominent when sipping...'. It is not a coffee flavored whisky, it doesn't taste like and isn't suppose to taste like coffee. Perhaps, because its Nikka COFFEY Grain Whisky they believe it's suppose to taste like coffee. It's made from corn and there is no coffee involved in it's production. The word Coffey is referring to the still that is used to produce it, still patented by Aeneas Coffey in 1830. So stop trying to sound like pretentious twits and just enjoy one of the best sipping whiskies there is.

Not good

Not sure what is going on, is it the barrel variation or is it my taste but this is far from enjoyable especially at that price. Very little nose, raw alcohol, a bit of barrel smokiness, not a quality bourbon like but rather fresh wood one. Some after taste with a coffee and overpowering sweetness but nothing to make this interesting. Even coffee taste is more like pale cheap one and not like Brazilian one with full of life and character. After alcohol wears off ,strange as this is 45% , bitter coffee is still on the palette and I really cannot feel anything more but sweetness , maybe a hint of vanilla and citrus ,some orange¿. Very disappointed as Nikki black was quite enjoyable experience.
Adding few drops of water helps taming the alcohol harsh sent. Coffee taste becomes more prominent when sipping, still alcohol on the palette . Still unpleasant after taste and this time sweetness stays longer.

Uber smooth. A cross between a single malt and a bourbon. Notes of chocolate, caramel, and espresso. Seems like the issue with the Nikka NAS single malts that replaced the age statements is so many people loved the age statements and have not compared 10/12/15/20 yr olds to NAS in blind tastings, seeing how many people like the coffey malt, coffey grain, and nikka from the barrel.

male ..molto male...deludente,dolciastro,ricorda il bourbon,molto ma molto caro per quello che vale

24th October 2017

I am seriously impressed....

One of the smoothest...wonderfully creamy across the palate.

15th October 2017

Maybe it's me, but I've never tasted anything like it.

Wonderfully smooth. My new favorite.

Hard to find here but worth the effort .

Great japanese whisky

I absolutely love this whisky. Everytime i pour a dram it's a new emotion. Seriously this is great

25th January 2017

I loved it

A friend brought some over for Christmas dinner and I fell in love! It's a little sweet but not in a bad way. Great smooth flavor

31st December 2016

Not great

This stuff isn't horrible but it isn't what I would call great

Goes well with Helen Merrill with Clifford Brown

It reminds you of some coffee liqueur you made your date lovelier, but it tastes far more refined. I usually go for Islay single malt, but this one moved me into a different direction, or, destination. But the ultimate destination stays the same: Helen Merrill with Clifford Brown. A fabulous whiskey, a fabulous night of music.

The biggest problem with this whisky is running out of it. Fabulous stuff

25th May 2016


Not unpleasant but not particularly exciting. No stand out flavours. Enyoyed the glass I tried would drink it again if it was going bit wouldn't pay for it. Too much taste of raw alcohol aswel....meh

30th April 2016

Very disapointed

No complexity, no flavor, to much taste of alcool, nothing stay in mouth, very disapointed for the price it costs. I advise you a NiKKA black much much better, my favorit one

One of the best nosing whiskies!

A very well rounded whisky with notes of raisins, apricot, vanilla and toffee, yet without the lingering taste of honey. Extremely smooth, with an oily viscous texture that coats the mouth. Hard to come by in my region, but certainly worth the wait.

9th January 2016


The smokeiness was okay, but the overall flavor was way off. Barf! Also, burping afterwards is the worse part.

31st December 2015

Sweet with a lovely finish

I tasted this tonight for the first time. The first taste was sweet, honey-like, but not at all cloying. Notes of vanilla, toffee flavors. I sipped it neat and enjoyed it totally. It does not have the bite of a bourbon, rather a smooth finish more like a sweet Scotch. I can drink this regularly with pleasure.

5th December 2015

OK, not more

First of all - it is not single malt. It reminds me bourbon,as Four Roses (Single barrel), but it is more subtle. Sweet vanilla, corn.
As for me it is ok to drink with some meal (meat) not as digestive.

A surprise in a bottle

I was drinking this strait for a bit when the flavor started to fall off. I started adding a cube of ice to cool it down and add some water and the flavor opened up and all the subtle flavors came out. I recommend this as an introduction to Japanese Whiskeys. I would definitely get this one again!

Great Whiskey!

Really surprised by the taste- strong toffee flavor- smooth, slightly viscous.
