Named "Japanese Whisky of the Year 2014" at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge, this Japanese whisky has changed the way people view grain whiskies. Produced at the famous Miyagikyo Distillery in a unique Coffey still, the unique shape and characteristics of this still impart greater flavor and depth as compared to a modern column still. With a heavy corn mashmill, this whisky has a exotic flavor profile of tropical fruit, hazelnut and melon with wonderful vanilla and caramel notes. A unique experience, this whiskey earned a score of 90 points from Wine Enthusiast in 2015.

"Fans of grain whisky should be pretty happy with this, as well as bourbon lovers."

Product Details

An essential component of the house blends, this Japanese whisky is an original single grain whisky, distilled mainly from corn in a Coffey still, named for its inventor Aeneas Coffey. Exotic, fruity and unique, the spirit is meant for the connoisseur in search of an unconventional whisky. It is produced at the Miyagikyo Distillery, and it has more flavor and depth than whiskies produced in modern column still, as well as a distinct character that defines the house style.

About the Producer

The Nikka Whisky Distilling Co. Ltd. was founded in 1934 by Masataka Taketsuru, who traveled to Scotland in 1918 to learn the process of distilling Scotch whisky. He also studied organic chemistry at the University of Glasgow and malt whisky production at the Hazelburn Distillery in Campbeltown. After his death, the company was run by his adoptive son Takeshi Taketsuru, who expanded it substantially. Nikka is currently owned by Asahi Brewiers, and produces a wide variety of Japanese whiskies.

    Delicious Japanese Whisky

    (Posted on 8/11/2018)

    I was late to try this one because it's easy to come by at the stores and bars in my town. I finally tried it while waiting for a table at a sushi restaurant and was so impressed that I bought a bottle the next day and have now been through several bottles for myself and gifts for friends. It's rich and smooth and a delicious sipper.
