Nikka Coffey Grain

Nikka Coffey Grain

Official bottling
Single grain - East Honshu
Light gold
40% ABV
Dram

Nose: Pears, magic marker, papayas, salt caramel, butterscotch, hints of bananas. 
Mouthfeel: Light body, thickens slightly, watery around the edges. 
Tasting:  Sweet salty. Pears, raisins, bananas, vanilla, papayas, salt caramel, hints of lemon zest. 
Finish: Medium. Pears, raisins, bananas, lemon zest, hints of brown paper. 

Comments: 

Fragrant and salty, quite unlike other grain whiskies. Apparently this is mostly corn. Nice magic marker notes, and of course the requisite banana. Steaming heaps of papaya, tempered by slightly savoury salted caramel. Nice whisky, this. It's quite unassuming, and a brilliant decent-value daily drinking dram.

Verdict:

I like this.
