ReviewQ2 2018 Review: Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt Whisky

June 30, 2018by WQO0


Nikka Taketsuru, a blended single malt at 43% ABV, meant to be an entry level affordable starter single malt.

When let sit for a while the nose reveals a lot of quality woods used for ageing. Mature beyond its pedigree, but with a hint of young rawness in the background. Reminds of an of an island malt (think Highland Park or Talisker). Nice caramels and a salty tang with typical stewed or dried fruit flavours. Very enjoyable and a great value for the price.

WQO Score: 87
