Nikka Coffey Malt

Nikka Coffey Malt - tasted this one together with the Nikka Coffey Grain. Distilled in the Miyagikyo distillery. 0.7l bottle with 45% vol and no age statement.

  • Nose: Glue, malty, sweet acorn, candied apple, hints of smoke
  • Mouth: Oily, creamy, light malt
  • Finish: A bit alcohol, light caramel and malt, glue again, a little bit of Miyagikyo profile in the very end.
Comment: Definitely not the usual Miyagikyo profile. It needs some time to breath for the nose to open up. Like the Coffey Grain the mouth feel has a very unique creamy mouth feel. Overall the malt wasn't too exciting to me though.
