Taketsuru Pure Malt is a range of blended malt whiskies named after the founder Masataka Taketsuru, the first Japanese who mastered whisky-making in Scotland and brought this expertise back to Japan. These expressions highlight the complexity and preciseness of blending inherited from Masataka.
This Taketsuru is currently discontinued making the whisky extremely rare. This is one of Nikka’s signature products to showcase our way of blending and perfecting flavors. Gentle malt flavor, fruitiness and extremely well-balanced taste make it a perfect entry point into the world of Nikka.
