Proof66 Notes

Nikka Coffey Malt whisky is a reference to the Coffey Stills that are used in production (a continuous column still that put scotch on the world stage). This is the single malt expression (compared with the blended Grain) first released in 2012 but made part of their permanent range in 2014. It uses a base of 100% malted barley and could be compared in style to single malt scotch (though, of course, not scotch since it's made in Japan).

I was going to rate this thing higher. I really was! It's Japanese, it's cool, someone I know loved it and recommended it... I thought yeah, four stars. But it was a $15 pour at the bar (maybe not that bad but still). And it was good but it was hot... flavorful but I kept adding more and more bits of water to smooth it out. Then I had a Balvenie 14yr Double Wood right after. The scotch was SOOOO much better than the Nikka. Not close. So: 3 stars. Not bad but expensive and, I think, a bit flawed.
