Whisky Reviews for Taketsuru Pure Malt
50 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.25 points
- Japanese Whisky of the Year 2019 (Jim Murray)
- Decent floral nose, but sharp and simple body that leaves quick and has relatively no finish
Fruity, sweet, honey, malt,
Sharp, Apple, Hot, Vanilla, light spice
Quick, tart, apple strudel
Mineral oil, paraffin, plaster, little floral, some vanilla, hints of smoke... hmm no fruit?
Lovely and balance, some citrus, little pear, some peat in between, hints of smoke, some salt, lime stone, wax, mentol, and little plasticine. Quite excellent actually.
Medium long, mineral and citrus
- We are on a smooth alcohol whose only fruity note on the finish is noticeable and hard to decipher.
Without a real defect but without any quality, it is definitely a notch below that the 12 year old.
- Colour: gold.
Nose: sweet with sweet fruits, perfume, croissant, citrus, grass, floral, vanilla and light fruit rottenness notes.
Mouth: sweet with caramel, fruits, light smoke, oak and muffins notes.
Finish: middle with spices, vanilla, fruits, floral and grass notes.
Taketsuru Pure Malt is a well balanced, smooth, simple and easy drinkable whisky. I gave 84 points.
