NIKKA Taketsuru Pure Malt 43%
Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt is a tribute to Masataka Taketsuru, the father of Japanese whisky and founder of Nikka. Made from a blend of barrels from Yoichi and Miyagikyo, Nikka's two distilleries, this whisky offers a magnificent balance between great smoothness and deep complexity. A meticulous craftsman, Taketsuru has always strived for perfection in the blend of his whiskies.
Nose : Balanced, with citrus notes, a slightly saline peat.
Palate : It is full-bodied and generous, rich in fruit and white flowers, cut hay and chocolate.
Finish : Long, harmony of sweet spices, acacia honey.
Born in 1894 into a family of sake producers, Masataka Taketsuru is considered the godfather of Japanese whisky. After training as a chemist, he was hired by the Settsu Shuzo company which sent him to Scotland in 1918 for an apprenticeship. He developed a passion for whisky and decided to devote his life to it. In 1934, he built Yoichi, his first distillery, on the island of Hokkaido. Its growing success enabled him to establish a second in 1969 near Sendai, Miyagikyo. It is from the single malts produced by these two distilleries that the Nikka whisky group produces its entire range of Japanese whiskies.
