Tasting notes NIKKA TAKETSURU PURE MALT

Nose: peat and spices, black pepper, give rise to the first olfactory impact. Afterwards is the turn of red fruits and wood. Marine notes reach the palate as last.

Palate: it reveals aromas of malt and spices, the black pepper excels. Then come feeble notes of red fruits and licorice. The aromatic palette is not very “deep” and structured.

Finale: persistency is medium short. Dominated by black pepper.

Complessivamente un whiskey giapponese entry level, che sviluppa una paletta aromatica limitata e dotata di una complessità particolarmente contenuta. Anche il finale risulta evanescente e di poco impatto.

Overall, an entry level Japanese whisky, that develops a limited aromatic palette paired with a particularly contained complexity. Even the finale results evanescent and of little impact.
