Product Description

Celebrate your winning moments the right way. Do it with the multi award-winning Japanese dram, the Nikka Taketsuru 17 Year Old Pure Malt Whisky.

Named after the Japanese whisky pilgrim and Nikka's founder, Masataka Taketsuru, the Nikka Taketsuru 17 Year Old Pure Malt Whisky is an unbelievably amazing dram right off the bat. And not to be confused with single malt whiskies, pure malt simply means that it is a vatting or blend of single malts from various distilleries. That's why many deem it as the best of the best Japanese whiskey expressions; and hence the numerous medals and recognitions from different award-winning bodies in the liquor world.

The Nikka Taketsuru 17 Year Old Pure Malt Whisky prides itself in being the perfect marriage of single malt whiskies from 2 distilleries: Yoichi Distillery, known for producing full-bodied, rich, and peaty malts, and the Miyagikyo Distillery famous for their fruity and elegant whiskies. Thus resulting in a ridiculously superb blended malt whisky that indeed anyone won't dare to resist.

This rare whiskey has a lovely and mellow nose that invites you in with aromas of fresh fruit cocktail, honey, sultanas and other dried fruit, vanilla, berries and cream. If the Nikka Taketsuru's nasal offering simply won't entice you to have a taste, we honestly don't know what could. Now the silky smooth and well-rounded body is complemented by flavors of creamy vanilla, custard, nuts, some orange zest, and a bit of dark chocolate. Then, it leads you to a pleasurable medium finish balanced by bittersweet and spicy tastes.

Just like how Jim Murray appreciated this 17-year-old whisky from Japan, we sure hope you'd also love this the same way. So get your bottle now before someone beats you to it.
