Nikka Taketsuru 12yo Pure Malt Japanese Whisky 700ml
Masataka Tekutsuru, the founder of Nikka distillery way back in 1923. That is the legend this Pure Malt whisky is named after, and it does his name great justice. Using a blend of malts, this whisky is very floral with plenty of stewed fruit and rhubarb. Some deeper toffee sweetness and vanilla gives it a creamy mouthfeel and a little cinnamon spice adds complexity. A great addition for any japanese whisky fan.
Nose: Sherry bomb! Dried fruits and green apple, yum!
Palate: Milk chocolate, tobacco leaf and lingering dried fruits
Finish: Hints of coffee, some smoke along with a light grainy finish
Extremely good quality blended Japanese Whisky!
