    Decent floral nose, but sharp and simple body that leaves quick and has relatively no finish

      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.

  5. juju cassoulet scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    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.

  6. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    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.
