Must have NIKKA 17 YEAR OLD Taketsuru

NIKKA 17 YEAR OLD Taketsuru 43%

Blended Malt, Japan 70cl Ref: 630

A must have LMDW

Voted best blended malt in the world several times, Taketsuru 17 years old pays homage to the father of Japanese whisky Masataka Taketsuru, the founder of the Yoichi distillery. Creamy, very fruity and chocolatey, it illustrates the immense talent of Nikka’s Master Blenders. A string of superlatives would not be enough to describe this whisky that can be enjoyed neat or diluted with water, and even with ice (but only with special Japanese ice-cubes!). This classic among classics is exclusively imported and distributed in France by La Maison du Whisky.

Best Blended Malt in the World, World Whiskies Awards in 2012 and 2014. This 17 year old version pays homage to Masataka Taketsuru, the father of Japanese whisky and founder of Nikka. A blend of single malts from the Yoichi and Miyagikyo distilleries aged in sherry casks.

Tasting note

  • Appearance : Old gold with glints of copper.
  • Nose : spicy and delicate, it also develops notes of fruit (yellow mirabelle plums, peach skin) and chocolate. It lingers with aromas of old leather, dried tobacco leaves and dried fruit (apricots, figs).
  • Palate : voluptuous and generous, it presents candied fruit (orange zest), fruit in brandy (Morello cherries) and a delightful smoothness. Creamy, it develops notes of toffee, mocha and toasted nuts (hazelnuts).
  • Overall : long and worthy of an old Speyside whisky, it is characterised by praline, burnt wood and cigar smoke. Aniseed flowers and citrus fruit bring freshness. There are also some delicate herbaceous notes (dried grass).
The brand

The brand

Born into a family of sake producers in 1894, Masataka Taketsuru is considered to be the father of Japanese whisky. After training as a chemist, he began working for the Settsu Shuzo company, who sent him to Scotland in 1919 to carry out an apprenticeship. There he developed a passion for whisky and decided to dedicate his life to it. In 1934, he built Yoichi, his first distillery, on the island of Hokkaido. His growing success enabled him to open a second distillery near Sendai in 1969: Miyagikyo. The Nikka Whisky group creates its entire line of Japanese whiskies using single malts from these two distilleries. Official website
