It is unusual to see single malt whisky distilled in a column (AKA continuous or Coffey) still, but here you have it and the result is superb. Formerly exclusive to KWM in Alberta, this is one hell of an interesting dram, soft, layered and very complex.

The sugar yield of malted barley compared with corn and wheat is not favourable, especially when you take the cost of malting and corn subsidies into account. So the Nikka Whisky Co. must have some other designs than simply creating bulk whisky by running barley through their Coffey stills. 

Andrew's Tasting Note

Nose: granola bars, candied almonds and honey, lots and lots of honey; soft chewy malt (more deft than in most single malts) apples, hay and Demerara sugars.

Palate: malty but with oily tendrils more reminiscent of grain whisky; the Demerara sugars and apple are still there along with cold tea, earthy oak and some drying spices.

Finish: the spices and earthy toasted oak come to the fore with ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and fennel; very long, it retains the apple and cold tea notes.
