After trying 2 Single Grains and some positive japanese whisky experiences, i decided to buy a bottle of this one.

Its "Nikka Coffey Grain", a single grain whisky made primarily of corn and distilled in Coffey Stills (more often called "Column Stills")

Color is a very bright yellow.Nose: starts very very fresh and sweet, notes of corn, vanilla,maybe a bit burnt caramel.After a few seconds i get more and more spices and almost toasted oak.Maybe a bit reminiscent of bourbon, bit not exactly.

Taste: Wonderful soft and richt mouthfeel,almost like syrup.Sweet corn,vanila and some hints of tropical fruits.Finish starts sweet also but fades more and more into oaky notes.

To me, this is another wonderful example of how good single grain whisky can be.Its definetly not as complex as single malt, but very drinkable and highly enjoyable!
