- Appearance : old gold with golden hues.
- Nose : lively, mineral. Animal (leather, smoked meat) and lightly smoky (tobacco, ash), it evolves with fresh herbs and ripe fruits (apple).
- Palate : creamy, gourmand. After a sweet opening that contrasts with the liveliness of the nose, it develops with ripe fruits (white grapes), becoming increasingly oily (sunflower oil).
- Overall : smooth, liquorice-infused, it is characterised by notes of noble wood and spices (clove). Concentrated, it opens up with exotic fruit (coconut milk) and florals (honeysuckle).
- 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 1918 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
