A release of grain whisky from Japan’s Nikka, produced mainly from corn using one of their continuous Coffey stills. Rather than the rare and limited releases they have done before, this is a larger release to further show off this key component in the Nikka family of whiskies.
Nose: Sweeter and fruitier than the Coffey Malt, this is has oodles of sweet spice, mango and papaya aromas, candied orange peel and coconut.
Palate: Toffee popcorn, with more of that heady citrus and tropical fruit. Quite a mouthful.
Finish: Rich oak and marmalade notes dominate.
