Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt
Taketsuru's no-age-statement blended malt contains a high percentage of malt from Miyagikyo, with the remainder coming from Yoichi.
Aged on average for around 10 years in a variety of different cask types, including some sherry wood for extra richness.
Full bodied and smooth, a mellow peat softly coats the aromatic palette as smoke, soot and salty notes transcend the initial nose. This evolves toward candied citrus fruit, black liquorice and spice.
The palette is firm and powerful with a well balanced attack that gives equal footing to aromas of peat, smoke, spices, fresh fruit such as kiwi and melon and nuts such as almond and walnut. A long and silky finish that is extremely mature.
