About the distillery : It was a sake producer, Mr. Taketsuru, who created the Nikka brand. He is considered the father of Japanese whisky. Trained as a chemist, he was sent to Scotland by his employer for an apprenticeship, where he discovered whisky and fell in love with it, along with a beautiful Scottish girl named Rita. In 1934, he established Yoichi, his first distillery, on the island of Hokkaido. In 1969, his second distillery opened in Miyagikyo. Today, Nikka whiskies are a huge success, far beyond Japan's borders. The Nikka group produces its entire range of whiskies from the single malts of its two distilleries.

Detailed tasting notes : This whisky offers a fruity nose with citrus aromas such as orange and juicy pear. Complexity and expressiveness characterize the nose, evolving towards slightly herbaceous notes with a hint of peat and a slight bitterness, transforming from orange to grapefruit. On the palate, the texture is round and delicate, blending cereal notes with sweet spices and cardamom. Candied fruit emerges with character, adding depth and length to the whole. The finish, in harmony with the palate, introduces a discreet bitterness with peat, almost reminiscent of full-bodied dark chocolate.
