Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt Japanese Whisky. Image courtesy Nikka Whisky.This no-age-statement Japanese whisky uses malts from Nikka’s Yoichi and Miyagikyo distilleries, and the result has a smooth and malty nose with hints of cedar shavings, allspice, leather, and a touch of beef broth. The taste is smooth and buttery with a nice maltiness, lemon zest, and touches of allspice and ginger for a clean and well-balanced flavor. The finish is long and fades smoothly with a slight tartness of lemon zest. A clean and simple whisky. (June, 2015)
