Nikka Taketsuru 25 Year Old
70cl / 43%
- Japanese Blended Malt Whisky
A rare expression from Nikka's Taketsuru range. First introduced in Japan in 2012, this has now reached our shores, with just 120 bottles for the whole of Europe. Made up of malts aged for at least 25 years from Yoichi and Miyagikyo distilleries, this is sweet and rich with hints of both sherry and peat.
Nikka Taketsuru 25 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Complex and layered, with notes of cherry blossom, candied fruit, brioche and strawberry shortcake. Delightfully aromatic.
Palate: On the lighter side, with plenty of soft red fruit, floral notes, then spiced up with some toasty oak. Subtle but classy.
Finish: The red fruits persist.
Comment: Oh-so-classy, this is perfumed, fruity and very easy to drink.
