Named for the founder of the Nikka Whisky Distilling Co. Masataka Taketsuru. This Pure Malt expression is a blend of single malt whiskies distilled at the Yoichi and Miyagikyo Distilleries. A variety of cask finishing leads to a soft aroma with citrus and fruit notes. These notes shift to sherry, vanilla, green fruits on the palate. A Cask favourite!
