Nikka Taketsuru 17

Today I taste the Nikka Taketsuru 17yo pure malt. This one was bottled around 2010 with 43%vol.

  • Nose: Mineralic, green grass, pear juice, sweet peat, 
  • Mouth: Very mild, malty, light pepper
  • Finish: Sherry, light oak, very mild again, bananas, burnt oak "smell" and sandalwood
Comment: Very enjoyable whisky, fairly simple but distinctively Japanese finish.

85 points
