This pure malt whisky is characterized by a deep and flavorful richness and excellent balance unique to whisky matured for 21 years. You're sure to enjoy the nose, which blends the richness of ripe fruit with the elegance of the aged cask, and the complex changes in character that appear as the finish approaches. A blended malt named in honor of Masataka Taketsuru, the father of Japanese whisky. He is the first Japanese who mastered whisky-making in Scotland and brought his expertise back to Japan. Pursuing his own ideal whisky, Masataka established Nikka in 1934. Its rich malty flavour, roundness and pleasant aftertaste are a fruit of Nikka's excellent blending as well as a long maturation period.
Today Nikka remains faithful to the father of Nikka's patient dedication to blending and passion for quality, distilling at a site chosen for its natural attributes. The secret of this superb whisky is craftsmanship complemented by nature's blessing.
