Voted the World's Best Blended Malt Whisky by the 2015 World Whiskies Awards

"The strength of this whisky lies in the way the subtle aroma of peat builds up over time," says world-renowned British whisky critic Jim Murray in appreciation of Taketsuru 17 Years Old. Its mellow, well-rounded nose and palate are sure to please.

Pungent and oily nose with lots of toasty, sweet oak. Some malty notes begin to appear and the oak takes on a sawdusty, mature demeanour. With time some spices amble through. The palate is gentle and soft with citrus, mature honey and gentle smoke and spices. It takes it’s time to unfold. Medium length with quite a hot but spicy finish.

Blackcurrant Ribena, tingling and fragrant nose. A surprise on the palate, full, peaty, and spicy. A long and peaty finish. A savoury whisky to accompany smoked cheese or pickled fish.
