Nikka Taketsuru (Old) Bottling Note

A non-age-statement expression of Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt whisky, named after the company's founder, Masataka Taketsuru. It features plenty of whisky from the Miyagikyo distillery, as well as percentage of malt matured in sherry casks to give it a rich, spiced nose.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Sherry-soaked plums, raisins and green apple slices. Honey'd cereal, black pepper and hint of barrel char.

Palate: Espresso beans, milk chocolate, tobacco leaf and lingering Sherried fruit. There's a slight touch of smoke as it develops...

Finish: Elegant smoke continues, with golden barley and a final hint of coffee.

Overall: Superb Japanese blended malt from Nikka.

Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt (Old Bottling) Reviews

Smoke and power

A robust smoky Japanese whisky. Sounds strange to say but reminds me a lot of a Scotch, more so than other Japanese whisky I’ve tried.

Wonderful unique smoky flavour

Paid 70 bucks for a bottle in germany, had to try it out. It was def worth every cent, it has this unique smoky flavour which is really downplayed, and it also has a full fruity taste. A good example of japanese whikey done right

My choice!

Tried Yamasaki 12yr, Hibiki, Tottori and it is still my favorite. My brothers and I have to be careful when we crack one open.

Proves NAS can be stunning but seldom is.

Nose: Mild rot, fresh leaves and melon.

Palate: Spices and tea.

After: Perfectly blended citrus fruits.

Cheap in Japan - Value for money

I found this from basic superstore at Japan. Cost like 20€ there. Had to buy 2 bottles to home back then. :)

Lacking a little on the palate

Lovely nose of raisins, apples and sherry but lacks a little on the palate - eventually I get the coffee and smooth smoke on the finish, but not a lot in between
I notice another reviewer commenting it was on sale in Carrefour for £28 - that feels nearer whats right
