Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt 2020 Release



Nikka's limited 2020 release of their Taketsuru Pure Malt is a signature label in honour of their founder, Masataka Taketsuru. He was the first Japanese person who mastered whisky-making in Scotland and brought this expertise back to Japan. This was the start of Nikka's journey to become one of the world's most respected whisky makers. 

Taketsuru is a pure malt; a carefully crafted blend of malt whiskies from various distilleries, in this case from Yoichi and Miyagikyo distilleries. This new refined 2020 formula remains exceptionally smooth and well balanced, whilst showcasing exquisitely elegant softness and deep complexity along with rich mouthfeel and smokiness.

The fruity nose brings citrus, orange and juicy pear, evolving into herbaceous notes, a hint of peat and bitter grapefruit. The palate is round and full with sweet spice and subtle cardamom alongside candied fruit. An assertive character on the finish of smoke, dark chocolate and floral notes.
