Nikka Limited edition japanese whisky
Maybe, many of you heard about the story of that one day, when in a blind tasting in Scotland, an amazing whiskey left many with their mouths open. Well, this whiskey that many chose as the best was not exactly from Scottish lands, but from Japan. Its name NIKKA.
Masataka Taketsuru, born as the third son of a sake brewer, he learned to make sake of different kinds in high school. He was supposed to take over the family business when he graduated, but he got deeply interested in western alcoholic beverages, he eventually fell in love with Scotch whiskey.
In 1918, decided to travel half the world to reach Scottish lands and learn the art of distillation. He was captivated by the whiskey of the area and its main characteristics. This led him to return to his homeland, Japan, to build the first Japanese whiskey distillery in Asia, make his own Nikka whiskey, and build his two subsequent distilleries in the Yoichi and Miyagikyo areas. Taketsuru, a connoisseur of the technique, was very meticulous in choosing each natural setting, taking into account the resources of the area, the air, and the natural environment in general to obtain a first-class whiskey.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Miyagikyo Distillery, Nikka released these two limited editions of Yoichi Single Malt and Miyagikyo Single Malt 2019. Both whiskeys are a blend of vintages 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s.
