Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt
Taketsuru's no-age-statement blended malt contains a high percentage of malt from Miyagikyo, with the reminder coming from Yoichi. Aged on average for around 10 years in a variety of different cask types, including some sherry wood for extra richness.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Grassy malt, earthy vanilla, toasted coconut and BBQ pineapple.
Palate: More vanilla, subtly floral at points. Salted butter on toasted teacakes, ripe pear and peach.
Finish: Lingering peat smoke and subtle baking spice warmth.
