Must have NIKKA 21 YEAR OLD Taketsuru

NIKKA 21 YEAR OLD Taketsuru 43%

Blended Malt, Japan 70cl Ref: 651

A must have LMDW

While the Nikka Taketsuru 17 years-old has won numerous gold medals, it is surpassed by its older, 21 years-old brother. This cult blended malt has all the qualities of the 17 year old, with an additional note of exotic fruit that is often found in truly great whiskies. Jacques Génin, the famous Parisian pastry chef and chocolate maker, made it famous with his legendary BABA NIKKA, in which the Nikka 21 years old replaced rum. This absolute must is exclusively imported and distributed in France and Europe by La Maison du Whisky.

Quite simply "the best pure malt in the world" for Whisky Magazine! Round and generous, this blend of single malts with delight all whisky lovers, from novices to experts. Concentrated enjoyment.

Unpeated. Spicy, floral, fruity. Master Tseng: evokes a Wulong, such as Tié Guan Yin from the Fujian province, with its scents of flowers (magnolia, lilac), coconuts and very ripe sugar apples. Jacques Génin: the voluptuous character of this whisky would be heightened with a vanilla or praline millefeuille.

Gold Medal, International Spirits Challenge 2012 Voted best blended malt at the 2011 World Whisky Awards

Tasting note

  • Appearance : old gold with glints of green.
  • Nose : firm, lively. A mixture of marzipan, heady flowers (iris, honeysuckle), candied citrus fruit (lemon, orange) and salt, this is a particularly powerful whisky. It evolves with vanilla, new oak and mentholated and herbaceous notes (fresh tobacco). Finally, liquorice combines with rich peat and gentian to create a pleasant bitterness.
  • Palate : sweet and balanced. At the front palate, the spices (cloves, nutmeg) gain in strength. Its passions are calmed by praline and dried fruit (almonds, cashew nuts). Ripe fruit (pear, apple), vanilla and exotic fruit (pineapple, persimmon) are now given free expression. The citrus fruit is engorged with sugar.
  • Overall : long, tender. Slowly finishes with notes of freshly cut grass, star anise and green liquorice. The peat becomes just a memory. Generous, it lingers with mocha, acacia honey and green mint. Its saline character comes gradually to the forefront.
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
