Carefully blended whiskies from the Yoichi and Miyagikyo distilleries make up this Taketsuru, and carries the distinctive oaky hallmark of Japanese malt whiskies.

The nose is fresh and lively, with a soft fruityness from the use of sherry casks, which is joined with a touch of nuts and gentle smoke in the background. A perfectly balanced dram and a wonderful introduction to the world of Japanese whisky.

Nose: Sherry-soaked plums, raisins and green apple slices. Honey'd cereal, black pepper and hint of barrel char.

Palate: Espresso beans, milk chocolate, tobacco leaf and lingering Sherried fruit. There's a slight touch of smoke as it develops...

Finish: Elegant smoke continues, with golden barley and a final hint of coffee.

Overall: Superb Japanese blended malt from Nikka.
