Being a company obsessed with quality over quantity, Nikka is a highly respected maker of alcoholic beverages. It still uses the somewhat inefficient Coffey stills to make its grain whisky, gaining their superior taste and aroma. The Taketsuru blend is a perfect showcase of the results that this stubbornness produces.
Released in 2014, this Taketsuru Pure Malt whisky non-age-statement expression was named after the company’s founder, Masataka Taketsuru, who purchased the stills back in the 1950s. It contains a higher percentage of malt from Miyagikyo than average. You have to try this one!
