Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt 2020


A blend of Yoichi sherry casks and Miyagikyo sherry and remade casks, the new Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt boasts extraordinary and captivating freshness.

Slightly peaty and salty, it is also exotic, intensely fruity, floral and spicy. In terms of aromas, the peat becomes gradually more powerful, and its flavours play a key supporting role to all the notes in a score bolstered by a minimalism, sincerity and generosity worthy of the greats.

Launched in the year of the 100th anniversary of the marriage of Masataka Taketsuru, the founder of Nikka Whisky, and his Scottish wife Rita, we recommend tasting this bottling straight or with an ice ball to chill and slowly dilute the whisky.
