In the competitive world of whisky few bottles can stay top of their class for long, but the Takesturu 17 has managed to do just that.

This award-winning bottle is part of Nikka’s Taketsuru range; named in honour of Nikka founder and father of Japanese whisky, Masataka Taketsuru. He is widely credited with bringing the craft of real single malt whisky to Japan in the 1920’s.

This blend of malts is from the two Nikka distilleries, Yoichi and Miyagikyo.

Winner of numerous awards including "World Whiskies Awards": World's Best Blended Malt (2015, 2014, 2012)

Tasting Notes (Dave Broom)

Nose: Clean, with layered tropical fruit. Eucalyptus, red fruit, vanilla. Oak. Good weight and breadth.

Palate: Oily, fruity and juicy. Almost Irish. Firm with obvious oaken structure but sufficient sweetness (cocoa, liquorice, vanilla) to carry.

Finish: Lightly gripping.

Comment: Images of a weather-beaten oak. Mature, but sweet-hearted.
