Nikka Pure Malt Taketsuru 43% ABV (50ml)
A non-age-statement expression of Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt whisky, named after the company’s founder, Masataka Taketsuru. It features plenty of whisky from the Miyagikyo distillery, as well as percentage of malt matured in sherry casks to give it a rich, spiced nose.
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.
