Nikka 17 Year Old Taketsuru Pure Malt Japanese Whisky 750ml

SKU #1139998

Named for Nikka's founding father Masataka Taketsuru, the 17 year old has long been coveted by the American market, which could only read the bombastic tasting notes from international travelers and whisky fans living abroad. The Nikka 17 is one of the most celebrated of the available portfolio and really brings the goods flavorwise -- round and soft with dried fruits and an earthy, meaty flavor on the profile, this is not only of the best Nikka whiskies we've ever carried, but one of the best Japanese whiskies period.

Nikka 17 is the lightest and least heavy of the small portfolio the Japanese distillery has sent stateside. It's still packed with flavor, albeit more nuanced and less obvious than some of their other expressions. It's a concentrated palate of toasted almonds, soft vanilla, creme brulee, and sweet barley. One of the great whiskies of the world, let alone Japan.
