Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt 21 Year Old
Whisky Region: Japanese Whisky
NIKKA TAKETSURU 21 YEAR OLD, was voted to the best blended malt in the world. Well presented, the Japanese characteristic note of earthy mushroom expresses masterfully in the nose, while the mouth reveals an incredible lesson of assembly. Rich notes of juicy fruit resting on a delicious peaty base, woody enough to structure debates and endow a bit of bitterness to balance it. Awards: Elected Best Blended Malt at World at World Whiskey Awards in 2011. Gold Medal at Spirits Challenge International Competition in 2012.
Colour: Gold with green highlights
Nose: Fine, clean and powerful, it turns out to be very pastry with notes of frangipane. Flavors of iris and honeysuckle are highlighted by citrus and peat.
Palate: Balanced with spices and dried fruits. It evolves on ripe fruits, vanilla and exotic fruits.
Finish: Long and tasty, marked by vegetable notes of freshly cut grass. The peat embeds aromas of mocha and acacia honey.
