Elu meilleur blended malt aux World Whisky Awards 2011

Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or à reflets verts.
  • Nose : ferme, vif. Mélange de frangipane, de fleurs capiteuses (iris, chèvrefeuille), d’agrumes confits (citron, orange) et de sel, il se révèle particulièrement puissant. Il évolue sur la vanille, le chêne neuf et sur des notes mentholées et herbacées (tabac frais). Enfin, la réglisse confine à la tourbe grasse et la gentiane lui procure une agréable amertume.
  • Palate : douce, équilibrée. Placées en avant, ses épices (girofle, muscade) montent en puissance. La praline et des fruits secs (amande, noix de cajou) calment ses ardeurs. Désormais, les fruits mûrs (poire, pomme), la vanille et les fruits exotiques (ananas, kaki) peuvent s’exprimer en toute liberté. Les agrumes se sont gorgés de sucre.
  • Overall : longue, tendre. Elle s’alanguit sur l’herbe fraîchement coupée, la badiane et la réglisse verte. La tourbe n’est plus qu’un souvenir. Gourmande, elle se prolonge sur le moka, le miel d’acacia et la menthe verte. Son caractère salin prend peu à peu l’ascendant.
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
