This 21 Year Old bottling is dedicated to the Father of the Japanese Whisky Industry, Masataka Takesuru.

The tale of Masataka Taketsuru's life is of the same fabric legends are made of. Sent in 1918 as young apprentice to Scotland by his Japanese employers to crack the secrets of whisky, he not only came back with that knowledge but also with Rita Taketsuru (nee Cowan), who went on playing a decisive role in the development of the Japanese Whisky industry. Thanks to her connection to Japanese high society, Masataka was able to finance the company that is now known as Nikka Whisky.

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