Interesting fact… Nikka Taketsuru 12 Year Old whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Japan. Had it been produced in America its name would be Nikka Taketsuru 12 Year Old whiskey, instead of whisky.

User Reviews of the Nikka Taketsuru 12 Year Old

My first Japanese Whiskey

A gift from my wife, who has now warmed to my love for fine whiskey. I was unprepared for how delightful this would be. Elegant. Gentle. Lovely nose. Nicely balanced in flavors. As fine a dram as any Scotch Whisky I have tried and better than many. Drink this one neat - ice or water would not improve it!

A very deep and enticing aroma My first sip, and in an instant my tongue was smiling Layers of flavours swirled all over it Every Japanese whiskey I have tasted cements my love of their skill A must..spot on comments by the master of malt chaps

Really good whiskey

I love it. A huge fan of Japanese whiskeys in general.. this is right up my alley. Is it better than Hibiki and Yamazaki 12yo ? Probably not. But lovely all the same. Jason Breen

Good stuff.

Smooth, rich, fruits, caramel toffee. I can't detect any smoke but that's just fine with me. Just a really good tasting whisky.

Excellent

The local store had a tasting today of this and other whiskey. I enjoyed it so much that I purchased a bottle on the spot. Who knew that the Japanese could do such a great whiskey. Oh, and never mix it with anything(save a cube or two).

Nothing of astonishing...

Really nothing of special... is a discrete vatted whisky suitable especially for the mixing (with the soda works well). Enough not recommended... The Nikka "from the barrel" is less expensive and more delicious at least of one point.

Taketsuru 12

Your tasting notes are spot on; although, I feel that apple fruit and cinnamon are prevalent in the nose and on the palate. The finish with its malt/digestive note rounds the taste making it a spicy apple pie. A pleasure from start to finish. The Japanese have made a superb whisky here. highly recommended. Leigh H
