Nikka Coffey Malt Whisky

45% ABV - Whisky - Japan

Made from 100% malted barley distilled in a Coffey still. Technically considered a "Grain Whisky" and not a "Malt Whisky" because it wasn't produced in a pot still. Also not technically a "Japanese Whisky" according to current law as some older batches contained a small amount of malt whisky from the Ben Nevis Distillery in Scotland before being redistilled at Nikka. Aged in used oak barrels. Rich and malty with a silky mouthfeel and weightiness on the palate.
