Taketsuru Malt Whisky

Taketsuru Malt Whisky

This is a blended malt named in honor of Masataka Taketsuru, the father of Japanese whisky. He is the first Japanese who mastered whisky-making in Scotland and produced the genuine whisky in Japan. Masataka learned that the natural resources surrounding a distillery were essential for quality whisky. Based on his thought, he selected two places, Yoichi and Miyagikyo, and built two distilleries there. Its gentle malt flavor, fruitiness and extremely well-balanced taste make it a perfect entry point into the world of Nikka.

  • Nose

    Sherry-soaked plums, raisins and green apple slices. Honey'd cereal, black pepper and hint of barrel char.

  • Palate

    Espresso beans, milk chocolate, tobacco leaf and lingering Sherried fruit. There's a slight touch of smoke as it develops.

  • Finish

    Elegant smoke continues, with golden barley and a final hint of coffee.
