Though he was the son of a Sake brewer, Masataka Taketsuru’s true passion was for whisky. And so Nikka Whisky was born. Their Japanese whiskys have won countless awards, including the World Whisky Award’s coveted ‘Best Single Malt’ award.
“The strength of this whisky lies in the way the subtle aroma of peat builds up over time,” says world-renowned British whisky critic, Jim Murray, in appreciation of Taketsuru 17 Years Old. Its mellow, well-rounded nose and palate are sure to please.
This pure malt whisky is characterized by a deep and flavorful richness and excellent balance, unique to whisky matured for 21 years. You’re sure to enjoy the nose, which blends the richness of ripe fruit with the elegance of the aged cask, and the complex changes in character that appear as the finish approaches.
