Customer Rating
A release of grain whisky from Japan's Nikka, produced mainly from corn using one of their continuous Coffey stills. Rather than the rare and limited releases they have done before, this is a larger release to further show off this key component in the Nikka family of whiskies.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Sweeter and fruity with oodles of sweet spice, mango, papaya, and orange peel.

    Palate: Toffee popcorn, with heady citrus and tropical fruit. Quite a mouthful.

    Finish: Not especially long lasting; rich oak and marmalade notes dominate.

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Sweeter and fruitier than the Coffey Malt, this is has oodles of sweet spice, mango and papaya aromas, candied orange peel and coconut.

    Palate: Toffee popcorn, with more of that heady citrus and tropical fruit. Quite a mouthful.

    Finish: Not especially long lasting; rich oak and marmalade notes dominate.

    This is one of the best. A must try to all the whiskey lovers. Great taste. Very smooth.

    Sweet, fruity, a hint of cinnamon with a bit of an oaky aftertaste. A touch of water eliminates ANY alcohol bite and brings out the vanilla flavour. Very friendly – a great Japanese whiskey.

    Usually a bourbon drinker rather than Scotch. I thought most of the Japanese whiskeys I've tried tend to be more Scotch-like than bourbon-like. This is much more similar to bourbon or even a great sipping rum. I love this stuff. Perfect neat with a cigar.

    For people who tend to like sweeter whisky, this is a must try. It has a lovely smell of citrus and vanilla with a lovely aftertaste of the oak.

    It is a very good whisky, but not great. I get heavy coffee , some coconut and orange marmalade. I would recommend it as an after dinner drink as it is very sweet. Nikka Coffee is to Whisky as pyrat is to rum. It would be cloyingly sweet before dinner...... for my taste. Rum

    A sweet and very drinkable whisky - not in the same class as the best malts though!

    Rolled the dice on this based on reviews. It is excellent. I usually lean to bourbon as it is easy to drink but this is tremendous.

    Have to give this a mark hovering around five stars. Very like an earlier Ardbeg version, Nam Beist, though a little lighter and cleaner, only really lacking a resounding finish. Subtle, refined and beautifully made.

    Wow, we usualy go for Scottish whisky, decided to try this one for a wedding anniversary- really enjoying it, great flavour and very easy to drink. Will be trying another Nikka next time!

    I am a fan of Yamazaki and Hibiki and the Nikka Single Barrel I tried did not warm me to the brand. Then on a recent trip to Japan I came back with a selection of whiskys and this Coffey Grain was one of them based upon the favourable reviews I had read here. It has been a bit of a Damascus experience - this Coffey Grain is simply superb - easily the best whisky I brought back and I will definitely be ordering more from the Whisky Exchange - much cheaper than the fare to Narita.

    Great Japanese whisky! Loved the citrus tones- but I got a lot of vanilla flavor- both in the initial scent and the full on taste! I think I like this better than Hibiki's Harmony offering.

    Being a Malt Whisky enthusiast I was pleasantly surprised how flavoursome this grain whisky is and I would happily have it again
