Nikka Taketsuru / Pure Malt / 43% / 70cl


The Taketsuru pure malt is named after the father of Japanese whisky, Masataka Taketsuru. After years of development this harmonious blended malt was released onto the market.

Expect endless complexity with earthy undertones, rich dark fruit notes and a well-structured flavour profile.
A previous batch was awarded a whopping 95 points by Jim Murray! Hints of toffee and coffee, with a subtle touch of peat and vanilla.

Nose: Fragrant fruits, some dried apricot and dates, soft sweet smoke embers with a touch of spice. 

Palate: Some soft smoke and toffee notes open up to a dark fruit, vanilla honey and ginger notes add a depth to this pure malt.
