Nikka Discovery The Grain
Wrapping up the Nikka Discovery series, this superb Japanese grain whisky combines spirit from four of its distilleries. It's a blend of old Coffey grains made up of corn and malted barley and Coffey malts made from 100% malted barley at the now-closed Nishinomiya distillery alongside Coffey grains and malts from Miyagikyo. There's also a barley grain made from malted and unmalted barley, and another from malted barley, corn, and rye, both pot distilled at the Moji and Satsumatsukasa distilleries, which originally specialised in making shochu. A splendidly balanced blend, showcasing Japanese grain whisky at its best, with a delicate, creamy texture, vanilla, fragrant herbal honey, and waves of elegant spice.
