Taketsuru Pure Malt, Nikka, Japan


Tasting Note

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.

The whisky is a blend of aged single malt casks from Yoichi and Miyagikyo and showcases an exquisite balance between great softness and deep complexity. Miyagikyo remains predominant in the blend but a higher portion of Yoichi is used in this new edition giving the whisky a more expressive character. The main barrel influence comes from Miyagikyo & Yoichi ex-Sherry casks and Miyagikyo which has been aged in American oak.
