NIKKA 1995 Coffey Grain Cask 111921

Single Grain, Japan 70cl Ref: 51813C

‘Neither completely the same, nor completely different...’ wrote the poet. Surprisingly similar to the organoleptic landscape of the Nikka Coffey Grain Single Cask no. 112093 from the same collection, this bottling is nevertheless very different in how it unfolds its olfactory and gustatory talents. This game of influence is full of nuances and a pretext for a Homeric combat where every one of the protagonists get a turn at winning.

Profile: the nose is distinguished, offering spicy (white pepper), fruity (nectarine) and camphoric scents. Corn and malted barley compete in intensity. Bursting with exotic flavours, the palate then reveals vanilla and slightly burnt notes. The end of the palate is deliciously floral (carnation, iris). The corn gradually reveals its mellow softness.

Tasting note

  • Nose : vif, puissant. Avec une fraîcheur remarquable, le premier nez restitue d’onctueuses notes de maïs et de vanille. Peu après, l’orge maltée et ses tonalités herbacées complètent ce tableau particulièrement céréalier. Il évolue avec dynamisme sur les épices (poivre, cannelle, gingembre), les fleurs capiteuses (chèvrefeuille, freesia), les agrumes confits (citron, pamplemousse) et la noix de coco.
  • Palate : droite, élégante. Dans un premier temps, une fine liqueur miellée répand sur les papilles des saveurs de tilleul, de menthe et d’abricot. Avec ses notes de fruits exotiques (ananas, kaki), de marmelade, de gelée de coing et ses épices (safran, cardamome), le milieu de bouche est noblement acidulé. Avec le temps, elle devient de plus en plus pimentée et capiteuse (lys, iris).
  • Overall : longue, crémeuse. Synthèse parfaite du nez et de la bouche, elle se montre tour à tour exotique, épicée, vanillée et herbacée. Son boisé toasté prend peu à peu possession du palais et c’est avec élégance qu’elle se prolonge sur les oranges confites, les amandes grillées et le toffee. Saline, la rétro olfaction est marquée par des notes de caramel au beurre et de cuir. Balsamique, le verre vide nous emmène nous rafraîchir à l’ombre d’une forêt de pins.
The brand

The brand

Born into a family of sake producers in 1894, Masataka Taketsuru is considered to be the father of Japanese whisky. After training as a chemist, he began working for the Settsu Shuzo company, who sent him to Scotland in 1919 to carry out an apprenticeship. There he developed a passion for whisky and decided to dedicate his life to it. In 1934, he built Yoichi, his first distillery, on the island of Hokkaido. His growing success enabled him to open a second distillery near Sendai in 1969: Miyagikyo. The Nikka Whisky group creates its entire line of Japanese whiskies using single malts from these two distilleries. Official website
