What they say:

In general, Nikka blended whisky is created from malt whisky made from barley malt in pot stills, and grain whisky made by distilling corn and other grains in a patent (Coffey) still. The main feature of the all-malt process is that top-quality barley malt is used instead of corn in the Coffey still, resulting in a whisky made entirely from malt. All-malt whisky, made from barley alone and blended from malts matured over long periods of time, is blessed with a deep scent and mellow taste.

This 100% malt whisky is made using Nikka’s proprietary all-malt production method.

What I say:

All Malt is a mixture of Single malt from Yoichi plus single malt and coffey distilled malted barley from Miyagikyo distillery. The resulting dram is golden with a distinct orange zest aroma, oily and smooth in the mouth with a little hint of oak wood and then a vaporous and short finish.
