Made from the combination of the two distilleries of Yoichi and Miyagikyo, this whisky was the pride of its creator Mastaka Taketsuru, founder of Nikka and father of Japanese whisky. Very well balanced with gentle peat and pleasing malty aroma. Round, pleasant taste with good structure. Rich palate derived from careful aging in hand selected casks. Long smooth finish with a touch of fruit and spice.

Wine EnthusiastThe luxe aroma mixes rich butterscotch and apple sweetness. On the palate, this whisky is light and gentle, interspersing fruit and smoke and finishing with a spark of cinnamon heat. Add a splash of water; recommended for sipping.
