70cl/40% ABV  Japan

This blended malt whisky is named after Mastaka Taketsuru, a Japanese man that studied whisky production in Scotland, fell in love with a Scotswoman, and founded and built what would become Nikka Whisky. This whisky is a blend of the two malt whisky distilleries Taketsuru built, Yoichi and Miyagikyo and is named in his honor.

"The modest sandalwood aroma is quickly overtaken by the spiced maple syrup aroma. The taste profile has buttered cinnamon toast that has been slightly burnt and baked pears served with ice cream. Despite these rich sweet tastes, the whisky finishes somewhat dry and tingles the gums."
