Color
Yellow gold
Nose
Открытый, сливочно-кондитерский, песочное печенье, пирожное Берёзка, повидло, столярные и лаковые нотки, немного минеральных тонов - сухие нагретые камни, промасленный инструмент, стальная пыль с машинным маслом.


Taste

Сладкий, пряно-дубовый, лаково-смоляной, лёгкая перечная волна, калина, брусника; постепенно дуб разворачивается всё шире и шире, да и в глубины прибавляется.

Finish

Пряное с дубовой горчинкой, кислые ягоды - клубника, красная смородина, мандариновая цедра, лёгкое и приятное.

Comments

Приятный, вкусный, довольно насыщенный и разнообразный молт, ожидал худшего, весьма хороши аромат и финиш. С учётом достаточно низкой цены прекрасный вариант знакомства с японским виски.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Sweet malt and oranges. Caramel and chocolate. Perhaps it's my imagination but I smell some grain and bourbon in here but more refined and delicate than the coffey grain.

Taste

Less body than the coffey grain and the same spices. Little fruit and some citrus. Quite smooth and elegant but more liquer style than whisky. Very little oil.

Finish

Medium finish, malt and vanilla.

Color
Old gold
Nose

Strong banana character with hints of citric fruits, honey, vanilla, and oak wood. Also with some unpleasant plastic hints. Some maple syrup-like floats with a drop of water

Taste

Smooth and moderate-thin body. Creamy. Still, strong banana character. Spicy. Ends with nutty character.

Finish

Nutty and with cocoa.

Comments

Cannot take the banana character. Too sweet. Interesting and unusual though.

Yellow gold
Nose

An interesting and slightly unusual nose. Lots of butter and bakery aromas mix with corn – there’s something of a hint of bourbon here. Honey and yellow fruits provide sweetness (lots of it) – melons and bananas in particular. There’s a slightly solvent-like edge that reminds me of Airfix model glue. Woodiness comes through nicely and combined with a pinch of nutmeg for spice.

Taste

A light but reasonably mouth-coating arrival. Again, it’s somewhat bourbon-like – caramel, butterscotch and light vanilla join peaches and bananas and sweetened corns. Underneath there’s a pleasant chocolate flavour, and it pains me to say coffee, but coffee is there too. Again nutmeg in terms of light spicing. It’s all rather sweet, but not quite into the realms of saccharine.

Finish

Short to medium and emphasising chocolate and sweet fruits.

Comments

Nikka Coffey Malt is certainly a touch unusual, but it’s also easy-going and quite fruity. Not the world’s most complex whisky, but there’s certainly enough going on, and going on well to find enjoyment here. Elements of this remind me of a hybrid between Irish pot still whiskey and a very light bourbon – that’s no bad thing at all.
