Japanese Style Blend.
 
Made by the Yoichi distillery, the second and smaller distillery of the Nikka Whisky Company. It was founded in 1934 by one of the two most influential men in Japanese whisky, Masataka Taketsuru. Yoichi Distillery lies in southern Hokkaido and has three sides surrounded by mountains, a terrain similar to the one found in Scotland, where Masataka studied the art of Whisky production and returned to Japan as a master blender - with a Scottish wife to boot. 
 
Named after Nikka’s founder, Masataka Taketsuru, the Taketsuru Pure Malt is a vatting of Whiskies from both the Nikka distilleries: Yoichi and Miyagikyo.  This includes some from sherry casks, giving a good dose of spice throughout. The oak casks also come through with a subtle sweetness from nose to finish. It is clear to see why this is an award-winning malt. Taketsuru is a great introduction to Japanese Whisky.

Landis,
I'm using Takesturu to wane myself off of Hibiki and Suntory whisky in general. I'm over being frustrated I can't find them. This bottle is not as sweet but can be just as satisfying.
