Deep, Rootbeer, Fudge, Lightly Peated Malt
In 1918, Masataka Taketsuru embarked alone on a long voyage to Scotland.to learn the secrets of whisky. In 1934 Masataka established Nikka because he was determined to introduce his fellow Japanese to the joys of authentic whisky. In the decades since, as his company developed and the enjoyment of whisky became a fixture in Japan, he remained relentlessly passionate about quality. Never did he allow it to be sacrificed in favor of efficiency.
Malt whisky is distilled exclusively from barley malt and pure malt whiskey is malt whisky from several distilleries vatted together. The Nikka Taketsura contains malt whiskies matured for 10 years on average at the Yoichi and Miyagikyo distilleries that are blended in vats to produce this outstanding pure malt whisky.
