J for Japanese Whisky

World Whisky Day is fast approaching on Saturday the 19th May 2018.

As part of the build up I’m featuring a series of blogs – both old and new – over the next month focusing on a country from each letter of the alphabet – if possible – that makes whisky.

Today is J for Japanese Whisky.

NIKKA TAKETSURU 12 YEAR OLD PURE MALT, 40%

Japanese whisky has been around since the 1920’s.

It’s charms have taken a while to grow on me.

Hibiki Harmony didn’t sing for me.

Yamazaki 12 wasn’t quite melodic.

But Nikka Coffey Malt opened up my senses with it’s rich notes

And the Taketsuru 12 Year Old is still serenading me!

I need to try more.

Perhaps like Kirsten Dunst – I’m Turning Japanese?
