Nikka Coffey Malt

Nikka Coffey Malt

The Nikka Coffey Malt is the result of a unique distillation process in “Coffey” type column stills, which are normally used for grain whisky production.
As such, this unique Coffey malt is categorized as a grain whisky, and offers a surprisingly rich texture with deep oaky notes.
