An essential component of the house blends, the Nikka Coffey Grain is an original single grain whisky, distilled mainly from corn in a Coffey still (named after its inventor Aeneas Coffey). Exotic, fruity and unique!
A blend of Miyagikyo and Yoichi single malts with a unique grain whisky, Nikka from the Barrel embodies the expertise of the Nikka master blenders. Intense and generous, powerful yet controlled, this ambitious high strength blend is recognized for its originality.
With its subtle balance of fruit and refined peat notes, the Nikka Pure Malt Black offers a rare complexity. Its aromatic depth is the result of a selection of very different whiskies, combining the fruity elegance of the Miyagikyo malts, and the smokier notes typical of Yoichi’s character.
Intense smoke and peat aromas dominate the Nikka Pure Malt White’s aromatic palete, complemented by slight salty and vegetal notes. The Pure Malt White is the most heavily peated whisky in the Nikka range and yet it never loses its characteristic Japanese touch.
With a larger proportion of malts aged in sherry cask, the drier Taketsuru 17 year old presents the seasoned whisky drinker with sophisticated, mature aromas of dried fruits, leather and tobacco spice. With its stunning complexity, it’s no wonder this bottling was voted the world’s best blended malt whisky in 2012 and 2014.
Round and generous, perfectly balanced and mellow, the endless finish lingers on delivering a complex range of aromas, from tropical fruits to nuts, or mocha. With its four titles of world’s best blended malt in 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011; the Taketsuru 21yo is quite simply one of the great whiskies of our time.
This is a single malt from the Yoichi distillery, Nikka's first distillery, built in 1934. With its coastal and delicately peated aromas, supported by a perfectly balanced oak maturation, this exceptional Single Malt displays a truly authentic character.
