Launched on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the marriage of Nikka's founder, Masataka Taketsuru, and his Scottish wife Rita, Taketsuru Pure Malt 2020 is a blend of single malts from the brand's two distilleries ; Yoichi founded in 1934 north of the archipelago on the island of Hokkaido and Miyagikyo built in 1973 west of the city of Sendai on the main island Honshu.

From this marriage will be born an intensely fruity, floral and spicy whisky, with a slightly peaty and saline character. On the nose it will turn out to be greedy with fruity notes of citrus fruits (lemon, grapefruit) but also notes of coconut, chocolate, and a very fine peat. It is on the palate that the peat will gradually blossom while leaving plenty of room for fruity notes of apple and pear, as well as vegetal notes of white flowers (lily, lilac) and cut hay. This harmonious taste will continue in a long rather honeyed and spicy finish during which the peat will gently evaporate.

For this new creation, Nikka's Chef Blender has blended a majority of single malts aged in sherry casks and a few "remade casks" which are Bourbon casks, part of the damaged staves of which have been replaced by new ones.
