- Appearance : lemon yellow.
- Nose : refined, balanced. On the first nose, notes of citrus fruit (lemon, grapefruit), coconut and chocolate appear alongside a very light and salty peat. Allowed to breathe, the peat becomes more intense, as freshly cut grass and vanilla are delicately placed throughout the aromatic palette. Next, exotic aromas of pineapple and banana confirm the fruit’s dominance.
- Palate : full-bodied, well-rounded. On the attack, a delicious lemon meringue tart is served on a platter. After this wonderfully rich start, a delicately acrid, dry and above all salty peat gradually takes hold. It creates an earthy foundation for a full expression of notes of fruit (apple, pear), white florals (lilac, lily), cut hay and chocolate. At the very end of the palate, the malted barley radiates intensity.
- Overall : long, elegant. At the start of the finish, acacia honey spreads across the palate, as sweet spices (cinnamon, ginger) bring lots of structure. Next, nuts (chestnut, hazelnut) bring out the wonderful maturity emanating from the flavour palette. On the retro-nasal olfaction, cut hay, liquorice and milk chocolate create a very harmonious combination of flavours. The empty glass is slightly peaty, herbaceous and vanilla.
- 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
