Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky

It is not a misspelling of coffee, it is Coffey, the still in which this whisky is distilled.  Created with a 95% corn mashbill this would be a bourbon if it were distilled in the U.S.A but labeled as a whisky as it is distilled in Japan.  This particular version from Nikka, the Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky, has a really nice flavor profile.

The nose is pleasant with sweet, fruity notes.  The taste has a rich, sweetness with the caramel notes shining through.  The finish is a little short with a nice balance of woodiness with the caramel.  All-and-all a really nice bourbon; whoops I mean whisky!
