There are several outstanding grain whiskies that are worth seeking out. Nikka's is one, and all the more unusual for being Japanese. Nikka have released a number of 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. Nothing but positive reviews on all fronts.

Tasting note: Brilliant gold. Superb scents of vanilla cream combined with sweet fruit - poached pear? Dried banana? Second pass finds tea biscuits, shortbread. Remains creamy throughout. Silky, almost oily delivery offers semi-sweet Irish pot still-like flavours: vanilla wafer, meusli, then added pepper to finish. Concludes sufficiently fresh, caramelly / vanilla heavy with short bread and lingering sugars in the aftertaste. Irish whiskey meets Venezuaelan rum. Delicious. 45% Alc./Vol.
