Review - Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt Whisky

Rating 4 Glasses



Tasting Notes

  • Color & Consistency: Golden Hay, This is a whisky that skipped leg day one too many times
  • Nose: Das fruity ya! Medicinal, little bit of toffee, floral
    • Taste: Sweet, smooth with a bite of youth
    • Finish: Short sweet and to the point

Conclusion: Tastes and feels exactly like you would expect a Japanese whisky to taste and feel. It's much more about the liquid itself than where the liquid came from and being grain forward with only a hint of the barrel there is not a lot of heat but its still very drinkable. Definitely no Yamazaki 12 but a good solid whisky nonetheless. For what is available in this price range we would spend the $10-20 more for a Suntory and call it a day.
