Distilled from 100% malted barley through a Coffey still, which is rarely done given the complexity and skill required, Nikka Coffey Malt Whisky boasts notes of cinnamon, clove, lemon and rich oak, making it ideal for sipping neat or as the base spirit in a cocktail. The Coffey stills contribute the unique depth and flavor of the distillate, not found in modern column stills of today.
Nose: Notes of rich spices and candied citrus.
Palate: Robust dense texture with notes of cinnamon, clove and lemon.
Finish: A long finish with a blend of rich oak, tobacco and mild chocolate
Nikka Coffey Malt Old Fashioned
2.5 oz Nikka Coffey Malt
0.5 oz Demerara Syrup
4 dashes Abbott’s bitters
Lemon peel for garnish
In an old-fashioned glass, muddle lemon peel with bitters and demerara syrup – just enough to bruise the peel and release its oils. Add Nikka Coffey Malt and ice; stir for 20 to 30 seconds, or until well chilled.
