A tropical nose with a touch of cherries and baked apples and a little toffee and smoke as it broadens. Starts sweetly on the palate but soon the spice and oak kick in with heavier emphasis and the balance is maintained by the roundness and the touches of vanilla and mocha on the finish.
Nikka Taketsure 21 Yrs Old – Whisky, 43%
Nose: much less varnish and more roundness although it seems to be just as oaky as the 17. Lots of plums, sauce for Pecking duck (how oriental is that?), strongly reduced wine sauce, liquorice… Really concentrated. Lots of milk chocolate as well.
Mouth: balanced, slightly peppery at the attack – quite some salt as well. Prunes, walnut skin, soft curry, dried oranges, ginger. Gets quite drying (quite some tannins, lots of cinnamon). Very good.
