NIKKA COFFEY GIN - 70 CL
Created from maize and malted barley in the Coffey stills of the Miyagikyo distillery, this gin, produced for the first time by Nikka, sees the addition of a large number of citrus fruit (yuzu, kabosu, amanatsu, hirami lemon) and juniper berries.
|Nose||The extremely fragrant initial nose reveals incredibly intense lime and orange blossom. Allowed to breathe, it develops into a more milky (coconut), luscious (juniper), spicy (grey pepper, pink peppercorn) and stone fruit (apricot) register.|
|Palate||At once lively and unctuous, the attack reveals new aromatic plants (sage, verbena). On the mid-palate, citrus fruit, lemon in particular, and ripe fruits (apple, pear) take the upper hand before in turn being covered in strong spices (star anise, grated ginger).|
|Finish||The mouthwatering finish is like chewing on a liquorice stick. Its verdant character evokes green tea and mint tea. Bitter oranges give the end of the palate lots of energy.|
