Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky
Tasted as part of a Tweet Tasting organised by Steve Rush (@thewhiskywire) of The Whisky Wire in conjunction with Arkwrights and all the whiskies tasted were grain whiskies.
All the way from Japan this grain whisky from Nikka is likely to be included in some of their blends, such as Nikka From the Barrel and more and rightly so as it's a cracking dram really do like what the Japanese are doing with their whisky.
Initially i get freshly chopped golden delicious apples, with a vanilla crumble topping that's a little biscuity and a lot vanilla-y, really delicious nose on this. There's a slight prickle of alcohol but nothing that would really bother you.
More apple notes lots of golden delicious and pink lady apples with that vanilla biscuit crumble topping
A bit of heat and a lot of vanilla and apple, yum.
