Nikka Whisky was established in 1934 by Masataka Taketsuru, the first Japanese to ever study the art of whisky production. He built the company's first distillery in Yoichi, Hokkaido, a location which he had always considered to be ideal for whisky production, similar in many ways to the Scottish town where he had studied. Miyagikyo, Nikka's second distillery, was built in 1969 in Sendai, Honshu, another pristine location perfectly suited to whisky production.
Nikka Whisky "Taketsuru" 17 Year Old is an outstanding blend of malt whiskies which have been matured for at least seventeen years at both the Yoichi and Miyagikyo Distilleries. The nose opens with deep and weaving waves of blackberry, apple pie and dark chocolate leading up to aromas of rosemary, white pepper, vanilla and oak. Balanced notes of spices, lemon cake, baked peach, orange peel and cinnamon emerge on the rich, full-bodied palate and merge with hints of cocoa, caramel and oak on the long finish.
