All Malt by Nikka is a Japanese blended whisky made from single malts from Yoichi and Miyagikyo as well as malts distilled in a Coffey Still aka column or patent still. While generally used for unsalted grain (corn or wheat), Nikka's innovative use of the Coffey still with malted barley results in a whisky which captures a new range of nuances in the same raw material. All malt, all flavour.
All Malt is old gold in hue with golden highlights, the aroma is lively & mineral, with hints of leather and smoked meats, tobacco and ash emerge alongside fresh apple and fresh cut grass. The palate is rich and delicious. After a burst of rich, liqueur-like softens which is at odds with the liveliness of the nose, ripe fruit raisin notes develop alongside an increasing notes of sunflower oil. This finish is soft, but concentrated, with distinct notes of aniseed, sandalwood and clove.
