It just hit me like a low flying duck in the dark. (The analogy although accurately describing my Aha-Erlebnis, as our German friends say, might be just a bit far fetched for some of you, for which I sincerely apologise.) I should compare the Nikka Coffey Single Malt with the Glenmorangie Single Malt, i.e. the Coffey column still vs the best separating pot still of them all. That should be interesting and should shed some new light on the role of the destillation as well as on that of the maturation process.
Both malts are very fruity on the nose, both lack the sharp-nosed Scotch character I mentioned in one of my previous posts, and both have loads of pear. The Nikka has a bit more glue, while the Glenmorangie has hints of licorice. On the palate and the finish of the Nikka there is sweetness and also some salt, sweet caramel and toffee. The Glenmorangie is sweet and fruity but no obvious caramel nor toffee. There is a clear Barley flavour to it, less so in the Nikka (although I do get a hint of it). The Nikka clearly also has a bit more alcohol, 45% vs 40% ABV, which explains the glue notes on the Nikka.
Mmmmm let's eat some Ice Cream with NERO Chocolate Sauce
1 cup vanilla ice cream
2 tablespoons NERO Chocolate Sauce (see the recipe 2 post ago)
2-3 Chocolate brownies or biscuits
Take one big bowl. Add the ice cream, then add 2 tablespoons NERO Sauce, or 3, or 4… You can add as many other toppings as you want, but if you want our advice, just add more Sauce and you’re done!

Islam’s holistic approach to health and well-being means that anything that is harmful or mostly harmful, is forbidden. Therefore, Islam takes an uncompromising stand towards alcohol and forbids its consumption in either small or large quantities. Alcohol is undoubtedly harmful and adversely affects the mind and the body. It clouds the mind, causes disease, wastes money, and destroys individuals, families, and communities. Researchers have proven that there is a strong link between alcohol and gambling. Drinking impairs judgment, lowers inhibition, and encourages the type of risk taking involved in gambling and dangerous activities. God tells us in the Quran that intoxicants and gambling are abominations from Satan and orders us to avoid them. (Quran 5: 90)
In Australia, a country with a population of around 20 million, about 3000 people die each year from alcohol abuse while 65,000 others are hospitalised. Studies have consistently revealed a link between heavy drinking and brain damage and around 2500 Australians are treated annually for alcohol related brain damage. Research in the United Kingdom indicates that 6% of cancer deaths are related to alcohol abuse and Harvard Centre for Cancer Prevention says that drinking greatly increases the risk for numerous cancers. Alcohol is considered highly carcinogenic, increasing the risk of mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, liver, and breast cancers. Drinking alcohol during pregnancy can lead to Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, causing the child to be small at birth, have some facial malformations, small eye openings, webbed or even missing fingers or toes, organ deformities, learning disabilities, mental retardation and much more.
