User Reviews of the Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt

Very Outstanding

Smoky flavor, an image of an old man appears.
Strong flavor, not like usual blended whiskey, very outstanding.
Very close to single malt.

Put this in your pipe

For any doubters of Japanese Whisky...I dare you to try a bottle of this and write a bad review! This is my go to blend and has been for several years. You simply cannot find a better dram for the price. Soft, smoky, fruity sweet and you crave more. Long distinguished finish. Beautiful.

My top contender

Had quite a few bottle of that delicious whisky. Can't recommend it enough. I keep finding myself coming back to that one. Its smooth, complex, with a long finish. Definitely my favorite scotch in that range of price.

I just bought a bottle of this surprisingly complex and outstanding Japanese whisky. I read about the quality of Japanese whisky but I was surprised how smooth and complex this whisky is. I plan to buy a case tomorrow. Enjoy!

I could say lots of great things about this whisky. Trust me, get it and you will buy it over again and again. This is coming from a scotch enthusiast. Japanese craftsmanship at its best. Now my everyday dram.

Now a believer!

I was one of the "Japanese can't make great whisky guy". Boy was I wrong. This thing is young and smooth but at the same time it has amazing complexity and a finale that seems to linger forever. Now I crave it! Simply amazing. Now I have to get my hands on the Miyagikyo!

I am a fan of hakushu whiskies & have been totally against non age statements. I bought this by mistake thinking it was a 12 year old nikka taketsuru as labeled on the shelf. I decided to give it a try since I have already bought it. I must say I am pleasantly surprised by how smooth & full bodied this tasted. It taste like a toned down hakushu 12. I am glad I have a few more bottles to enjoy.

Can't be this one

I am a bartender by trading, tried over 200 different scotches/ whiskies, this one blows them all away. very complete taste full body, smooth, and enjoyable to drink, just pick up a case of 6, will probably need to order more as they go fast, don't hold back on this one folks, ENJOY THE JAPANESE STYLES
