In this case, the mixture is 100% malt, something peculiar given that this category of whiskey should be distilled in pot stills. Unlike most distilleries that use only one pot still to make their whiskey, Nikka uses two Coffey stills in its Miyagikyo distillery to create a malt whiskey that impresses all who try it by leaving an indelible mark on their memory.

Malt whiskey is usually distilled into a very large pot and is not completely Nikka's exclusive procedure, but in general it is quite rare.

You will be able to appreciate its captivating aroma and you will feel it a little oily in the mouth, with a lot of depth in the nose.

Crafted in the famous Coffee stills, a continuous still invented in 1830 by Aeneas Coffee. The use of this type of still is unusual for a whisky, and creates a different range of flavours and textures that make this a unique spirit. Nikka Coffey Malt is elaborated completely from malted barley, but the categorization of grain whisky instead of malt whisky is conferred due to the use of a continuous still and not the traditional pot still. Complex, unique, and fascinating, this spirit is a sure bet to those who dare to deviate a little from the traditional path. Perfect to enjoy neat, or poured over a couple of ice cubes to maximize the experience.
