Japanese Whisky of the Year – Nikka Coffey Malt Whisky

Nikka has scooped the Bible‘s Japanese Whisky of the Year award with its Nikka Coffey Malt Whisky.

It is described as having scents of “candied lemon peel and rich cake spices” leading into a dense, textured mouthfeel with cinnamon, clove and citrus blending on the palate. The finish is a blend of spices, rich oak and oranges and lemons.

The expression uses corn that has been distilled in Nikka’s continuous Coffey still.
