  1. The_Chilicatch scored this whisky 83 points Newbie

    Very nice grain. Unusual and really special. The most appropriate association that I have ever read was canned fruit salad. It takes a while to warm up with him, then you do not want to miss him anymore. If you really want to try something different, this is the place to go. Nice thing!

  2. The_Independent scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    Typical grain. Fresh nose. Sweet, oily but also Grain-spicy. The finish is quite long, characterized by spicy and malty flavors.
    A sample is enough for me.

  3. schengel10 scored this whisky 69 points Connoisseur

    An interesting, but at best average Grain Whiskey at a totally overpriced price!
    • Nose
      fresh citrus, flowery, sweet, a lot of vanilla;
    • Taste
      powerful fruity onset, (peach, pineapple), slightly alcoholic, sweet, vanilla, some spice; uncomplicated!
    • Finish
      medium length finish; a lot of vanilla in the finish!

  5. Docmacwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Jim Murray has awarded 94.5 points to the Nikka Coffey Grain. "Whisky, from any part of the globe, does not come more soft or silky than this..." Pure matter of taste. This series will be discontinued by Nikka in 2019!

    • Nose
      Relatively fruity (apples and pears), but especially caramelized with the classic notes of vanilla coming from bourbon. A small salty tip giving a character of salted butter caramel (it remains light, do not expect a lot of of salted caramel on a slice of bread). I would have liked more of this but it’s pleasant.
    • Taste
      Also “bourbonesque” as we could say in french, more on vanilla than with the nose. If the term “coffey” has nothing to do with coffee (but comes from the name of the alembics used), however, it has a small gourmet and creamy side, like an irish coffee and it’s nice. Well, an irish coffee but using some rum… Yeah suddenly it’s not an Irish coffee at all but I understand myself (I’m maybe the only one to understand, ok). A very slight fruity touch, hard to define, maybe banana coming from its rum accents (yeah, sorry, that’s all a can say… NO I’m still not drunk).
    • Finish
      Medium lenght with vanilla.

  8. Brinker scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    A littlyle bit of a sting on the nose, but also very fresh and fruity. Light and easy to drink. I think the finish might be dull to some, but it has a good length and a soft roll off. I'm almost out, but it's definitely one that will find its way back in my cabinet.
