Taketsuru Pure Malt 21 Year Old was crowned World’s Best Blended Malt Whisky at the 2010 World Whiskies Awards. It really is a fabulous whisky, and for those of you who enjoyed the brillant 17 Year Old this offers just a bit more richness, a little hint more chocolate and coffee.
Premium – 2013 – Malt Maniacs Awards
Nose: Plenty of oak influence with notes of prunes and soy sauce. Cocoa, espresso beans, almost a touch of anise.
Palate: Spices, black pepper, loads of tangy sherry, hints of turmeric and other spices. Then ground ginger, mixed peels, hints of marmalade.
Finish: Long, good oaky grip with a perfect balance of spice.
