Macheye

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Grains and solvents. Oily corns and grains join toffee and caramel and vanilla in a fairly delicate and not hugely expressive nose (the Coffey Malt has a lot more oomph to it). There’s quite a strong vein of varnish and solvent running through this one – it’s not unpleasant (unless you’re a recovering glue-sniffing addict), but does solidify the relative youth of this whisky. Fruits are presents, but a little non-descript – mangos and bananas possible, but yellow-fruits is a more apt descriptor. Delicate and light.

Taste

Immediate rawness and solvent is tempered by some more pleasant fresh corns, vanilla and caramel. There’s earthiness here – mushrooms and some light butteriness that provides a modicum of texture. Spicing is greater here than on the nose – pepper in particular.

Finish

Short and with oak and underlying earthiness.

Comments

Nikka Coffey Grain is quite a reasonable young whisky, but it’s still a touch underdone in places. There’s some enjoyable freshness and fruitiness in places, but it’s all too brief and not particularly complicated either. By no means flawed, but for personal taste I’d take the Coffey Malt every single day of the week.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

süss, hellfruchtig, Vanille, Zitrus, floral. Angenehm , nicht komplex.


Taste

rund, süss, dann leicht bitter, ein wenig Eichenwürze, Vanille, Zitrusfrucht, Banane. Ein bisschen der Geschmack von ausgelutschtem Eichenholz im Hintergrund.

Finish

relatif kurz. Es verbleibt etwas süsse Eichenwürze, mit Vanille und Zitrus,  wobei die Süsse etwas von Süssstoff hat.



Comments

leckerer, einfacher Trinkwhisky. Mal was für die Terrasse im Sommer.

Nase: erst mal nur Uhu Alleskleber wenn man Ihn etwas stehen lässt, verflüchtet sich der Kleber etwas und Ledernoten kommen bei mir durch. Gibt man Ihm noch etwas Zeit und mit etwas mehr Abstand zum Glas kommen süsse Noten. Eventuell Zuckerwatte auch etwas Vanille lässt sich erkennen. Zitrusfrüchte wie beschrieben rieche ich keine!


Geschmack:
Vom Geruch etwas mit genommen Uhu. Bitter ledrig erstmal überhaupt nicht mein Geschmack. Aber dann ... Karamell, Banane etwas Lackritze ... WOW ... Langer starker Abgang der aber leider auch ein wenig Bitterkeit hat.

Gesamteindruck:
Dem Whisky muss man Zeit geben. Auf den ersten Eindruck und beim Geruch kann er nicht Punkten, aber hinten rauß holt er deutlich auf. Nicht der beste Japaner und auch nicht der beste Grain den ich bisher drinken durfte. Aber sehr interessanter Whisky, der das Geld (habe € 47,- bezahlt) wert ist.

Color
Pale straw
Nose

Very fresh, sweet and fruity. Lots of citrus in the form of freshly sqeezed lime. Light floral notes.

Taste

Again, very fresh. Sweet corn. Very little noticable alc. Almost like a good gin with lime and sugar crusted rim.

Finish

Not too long and not much developing, but again; some corn syrup.

Comments

This would be nice on a sunny day, relaxing in the hamoc after moving the lawn.
