A delightful Japanese whisky that has been meticulously crafted and named after its founder Masataka Taketsuru. A product worthy of its founder and no wonder why? A constant winner of the worlds best whisky at The world whisky awards. Beautiful tropical nose with a touch of cherries and baked apples and a touch of toffee and smoke as it opens up. Opens sweetly on the palate but soon the spice and oak kick in with heavier emphasis and the balanced roundness and the touches of vanilla and mocha to end. Srcumptious stuff!
