Nikka Taketsuru 17 yo

by Oliver Klimek on August 5, 2011

Blended Malt – 43%


My Tasting Notes

Colour: Medium amber
Nose: Raisins, toffee, banana, vanilla, nutmeg, hints of pepper and smoke.
Palate: Mild peat, raisins, grapes, cherries, toffee, wood spice, hints of bacon and nutmeg.
Finish: Long, fruity, slightly dry and slighly smoky.
Overall: Well-balanced and very complex, this is very fine example of a Japanese vatted malt. The general character is rather dry with the fruity notes remaining in the background.

Rating: 87/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
