Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt Whisky, Japan

Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt Whisky, Japan


Dedicated to the Father of Japanese Whisky, Masataka Taketsuru, this Pure Malt is a blend of Nikka's two single malts - Yoichi and Miyagikyo.

The nose has soft yellow pear, toasted coconut and vanilla, ripe pineapple and wispy, grassy smoke.  The palate has the precision and balance of a samurai sword.  Amidst the gorgeous tropical fruits is a soft salty butter, pineapple acidity and blossom tree florality that is distinctly Miyagikyo in style.  This dram lingers a long time in the mouth, turning to creamy coconut, earthy vanilla and gentle smoke on the finish.  Utterly delicious, and a fitting tribute to the Nikka founder.
