Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : topaze à reflets dorés.
  • Nose : ample, onctueux. Mélange de fruits mûrs (orange, mirabelle, passion), il devient de plus en plus crémeux (pistache, chocolat, praline) et floral (lys, rose, pivoine). La fumée repousse sans cesse le moment où elle va apparaître. Son évocation suffit pourtant à équilibrer et à transcender la palette aromatique.
  • Palate : vive, ferme. Son attaque est verdoyante (gazon, lierre, tilleul). Elle nous fait respirer à pleins poumons un air frais et salin. Le milieu de bouche est extrêmement fruité (orange, fraise). De plus en plus confite (abricot, datte), elle fait preuve de beaucoup de maturité. Comme pour le nez, la tourbe arrive sur la pointe des pieds.
  • Overall : longue, soyeuse. Est-ce dû à la présence de réglisse noire et huileuse et de tabac frais ? En tout cas, cette fois, la tourbe s’invite avec autorité, complexité et élégance aux débats fruités, floraux et épicés (gingembre) que la fin de bouche nous offre avec générosité. La rétro-olfaction est gourmande (flan aux pruneaux) et le verre vide est végétal, fruité et fumé (cendre, suie).
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
