Following on from Nikka’s bombshell that they would be discontinuing their Taketsuru age-statement range of whiskies, the drinks giant announced that they would be releasing a limited number of bottles of a new Taketsuru Pure Malt NAS expression. This exciting new whisky will replace the previous NAS Taketsuru Pure Malt.
Sherry-soaked plums, raisins and green apple slices. Honey’d cereal, black pepper and hint of barrel char.
Espresso beans, milk chocolate, tobacco leaf and lingering Sherried fruit. There’s a slight touch of smoke as it develops…
Elegant smoke continues, with golden barley and a final hint of coffee.
Superb Japanese blended malt from Nikka.
