Blended - Japan - 40.00% 6 Beautifully presented with fruit and barley working together. But a tad polite and falls just short of superstar status.
Taketsuru 17 Years Old
Blended - Japan - 43.00% 8 The creamy notes on the nose suggest more sweetness on the palate. Oak speaks up.
Taketsuru 17 Years Old
Blended - Japan - 43.00% 6 A savoury whisky to accompany smoked cheese of pickled fish?
Taketsuru 21 Years old
Blended Malt - Japan - 43.00% 7 Sweet enough to be attractive,sharp enough not to be cloying and spicy enough to prickle the tastebuds. A winner.
