The rich and smooth initial nose is characterized by notes of cashew nut, liquorice, mint and raspberry. Allowed to breathe, it elegantly develops into freshly cut grass, almond and citrus fruit (lemon). Next, coriander, coconut and lychee arrive in a grand finale. The fairly lively attack returns to dried fruit (date, almond), while a handful of very mild spices bring lots of energy (cinnamon, cardamom). The very herbaceous finish also evokes a very ripe pear. On the end of the palate, the smoothness of the maize and the special character of the malted barley are perfectly reproduced.
NIKKA Coffey Vodka
Produced in a Coffey still, this vodka is the result of a blend of maize spirit and malted barley spirit. During bottling, it was filtered through birch charcoal so that it would retain as much unctuosity and balance as possible.
