Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or à reflets cuivrés.
  • Nose : soyeux, équilibré. Le vin de Madère appose une signature vineuse, florale (lys, jacinthe) et épicée (cannelle). Il évolue vers les fruits rouges (cerise, fraise) et les amandes amères. Plus tard, des fruits secs (amande, figue) arrivent en force et lui confèrent beaucoup de suavité et d’épaisseur.
  • Palate : bien plus ferme que le nez ne laisse supposer, elle commence par tirer tout d’abord un trait minéral (ardoise) et acidulé (citron confit). Puis, plus conforme à la palette aromatique, le milieu de bouche fait la part belle au miel de bruyère, aux oranges amères, au tabac frais et aux fruits exotiques. Elle s’ouvre enfin sur des notes de chocolat noir, de cuir et de girofle.
  • Overall : longue, capiteuse. Des freesias, de la lavande et des pivoines délivrent dans un premier temps leurs parfums délicatement poivrés. Puis, un épais tapis de mousse recueille des fruits mûrs (poire, pomme). Gourmande, elle se prolonge sur le pain d’épices. La rétro-olfaction est délicieusement cacaotée et empyreumatique (bois de santal). Le verre vide est réglissé, chocolaté et fruité (orange).
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
