This is a great 17 Year Old blended malt named for Nikka’s founder, the whisky-pilgrim Masataka Taketsuru. Multiple award winning Whisky. “The strength of this whisky lies in the way the subtle aroma of peat builds up over time,” says world-renowned British whisky critic Jim Murray in appreciation of Taketsuru 17 Year Old. Its mellow, well-rounded nose and palate are sure to please.
