Taketsuru 21-Years-Old is a vatted Japanese malt whisky, blended using single malts from Nikki's Yoichi and Miyagikyo Distilleries. Named in honour of Masataka Taketsuru, one of the two founders of the Japanese whisky industry and the founder of Nikka, the company which produces this "pure malt".

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 07/05/2012

Appearance

Clear, mid golden amber with polished golden highlights.

Aroma

Dried fruit -plump sultanas and figs, dark bitter chocolate, instant coffee and amontillado sherry.

Taste

Similar to Nikka's 17-year-old Pure Malt in taste profile but with more refined and integrated rum and raison notes. Superbly balanced with ginger and cracked black pepper spice, tangy orange marmalade and a lightly smoked oaky garnish.

Aftertaste

More slightly peaty smoky notes emerge in the elegant, slightly sweet spiced finish. All in all, easy to like and all too easy to drink. diffordsguide
