From the company website:This is a signature grain whisky which was released in 2012. Predominantly made from corn, whisky distilled in a Coffey still is matured in old casks such as re-filled, remade and re-charred casks originally made from American oak to deliver the sweet and mellow flavors of Coffey distillates. This product meets all the criteria of “Japanese whisky “ defined by the Japan Spirits & Liqueur Makers Association.
Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky overview
Japanese Single Malt whiskey gets all the love, with whiskeys such as Yamazaki, Hakushu, Miyagikyo, and Yoichi being the main stars of the show. But guess what, there’s a whole other segment of Japanese whiskey, grain whiskey, to explore. Nikka Coffey Grain is one of those, coming from one of the largest distilleries in Japan.
As an FYI, I bought and use these Glencairn glasses for everything (they’re the best): Glencairn Crystal Whiskey Glass Set of 6, Set of 4, Set of 2, or just one. Full transparency, this is an affiliate link, so I may earn a commission if you buy this or something else from Amazon.

Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky Rating
I have far too much fun writing about whiskey and singlehandedly running The Whiskey Shelf to bring you independent, honest, and useful reviews, comparisons, and more. I’m proudly Asian American and can speak Cantonese, Mandarin, and some Japanese.There are no sponsors, no media companies, and no nonsense. Support The Whiskey Shelf by Buying Me A Shot.
Shattered glass really sucks, so if you’re on the move, this Glencairn-like stainless steel snifter glass should survive your travels. Full transparency, this is an Amazon affiliate link, so I may earn a commission if you buy this or something else from Amazon.
