  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Like the Coffey Grain base, but in version bodybuildée! Very generous on vanilla, toffee, roasted pineapple ... Alcohol goes well. A good single grain.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    TASTING NOTE LMDW A true work of goldsmith, on the olfactory plane, this Nikka Coffey Grain shows an uncompromising firmness that highlights a vanilla, spicy, preciously woody and divinely fruity. In terms of taste, the almost perfect osmosis between the sweetness of malted barley and the sweetness of corn makes it evolve into more candied and more roasted tones. While maintaining a very pleasant vanilla freshness, it shows with time more and more buxom (notes of infusion). Profile: lively, extremely fresh, the nose oscillates between corn and vanilla, before the malted barley and its herbaceous tones complete this aromatic table very cereal. The palate offers first a fine honey liqueur. It becomes as exotic and spicy (saffron). Color: old intense gold. Nose: fine, racy. With a remarkable power, it is at first spicy (mustard seed, white pepper), fruity (apricot, brugnon) and slightly camphorated. At aeration, corn and malted barley compete intensively. It becomes gradually creamy, vanilla and roasted (coffee, tobacco). Then new, more exotic fruits (mango, guava) and dark chocolate transcend the aromatic palette. Palate: straight, tense. The finesse of its slightly burnt vanilla woody highlights many dried fruits (almond, walnut, pistachio, apricot, etc ...). The mid-palate is liquorice, chocolate and spicy (cardamom, nutmeg, ginger). Gradually, concrete iris and carnation perfumes embellish the end of the mouth. Final: long, firm. Candied lemons, dried figs and toasted nuts are gradually coated with a thin layer of green licorice and vanilla. The sweetness of corn has taken precedence over the sweet bitterness of malted barley. Balsamic, the retro-olfaction is marked by notes of thyme, sage, fresh coriander and cedar. The empty glass highlights the finesse of the grain of the aromatic and tasty palette.
