A rare Japanese-market ‘Distillery Limited’ expression of single grain whisky from Nikka’s Coffey still.
This series was named to reflect the style of whisky inside the bottle and the ‘Woody & Mellow’ bottling represents the soft, elegant style of single grain whisky.
Nikka Single Coffey Grain Whisky is one of the better grain whiskies you are likely to find anywhere. Why? Because Nikka, being as stubborn as they are, refuse to stop using their Coffey stills. Although these stills are not nearly as efficient as modern stills, as they take much longer to operate, and are much more complex to use, the scent that they leave is much stronger than that of modern stills. Add a little wood and mellowness, and we have a winner!
