This is a 3cl sample from the original bottling of:
Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt
High-class blend from Taketsuru, featuring a high percentage of Miyagikyo malt, which explains the vibrant fruitiness. This is aged for around 10 years in a variety of cask types, including sherry wood.

The Perfect Measure
Yes, I am tasting a dram now of the product presented to James Baugh on his birthday. It is excellent!
Fruity and rich, this is a fine whisky. As I live in Japan, it is found here for around £25-£30, which is very reasonable. Even so, it's good enough that I'd happily pay £50 for it.
My favorite whiskey hands down
A blended malt. Sherried, red fruits, hints of coffee and tobacco, clove, ginger, nutmeg, raisins, A complex whisky. Name can be a bit misleading for uninitiated to malt whisky, who might perceive this to be a superior malt in some way, reminiscent of Cardu Pure Malt lol. A nice pleasant whisky with an interesting complex blend. Not outstanding IMO. Reasonable price.
Sharp was my first impression, but more of an indifferent sensation because as it coats the mouth it begins to finish with a wonderful flavor profile before it quickly turns towards a slight burn that lingers. Overall I actually think it is a very good whisky for the price. I also tried it next to my 21 year Pure Malt, which is probably not fair as the 21 year is much more well rounded. I think its more of "apples and oranges" when you start getting into that conversation. Ultimately I would recommend sampling this whisky if you get a chance.
