Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky
92 Points Whisky Advocate
While many dads have long decided to stick to what they like, some dads continue to seek novelty and adventure, whether by hang-gliding, surfing, or just trying new spirits. So maybe dad has been hearing about this new breed of Asian whisky everyone’s slobbering over and is eager to try it for himself. It doesn’t matter how much you love him, though-most of the top Kavalans and Yamazakis are way too expensive to procure, if you can even find them. A splendid affordable and locatable option, however, is this corn (with a small amount of malt) whisky made from continuous distillation using Coffey stills. The grain whisky is initially light and fruity, finishing with some fudge and toffee notes.
