Nikka Tsuru 17 Year Old Limited Edition Ceramic 43%

Volume on Label: 700ml
Packaging: In original box

This unusual decanter contains a venerable blend of which only the Nikka group knows the secret. Made from a blend of single malts aged 17 years or more from the Miyagikyo and Yoichi distilleries, it is incredibly fruity with stewed apple and oranges. Unctuous, it lingers on notes of cedar.

This whisky was blended with a well-rounded depth and smooth, refined palate in mind. To this end, a soft but luxuriant type of malt was selected as the key ingredient. This delicate balance, achieved by the Nikka Whisky team of blenders, is imbued with mellowness, sweet balmy freshness and smooth drinkability after 17 years of aging. The elegant expansion of its nose and palate is due to the careful harmonizing of strictly selected raw ingredients

In tribute to the founder of Nikka, a small amount of Tsuru 17 year old has been bottled in beautiful ceramic bottles. The precious bottle is presented in an elegant carton box. Created by Masataka Taketsuru, the Tsuru is a blend of single malts matured for at least 17 years…

Masataka Taketsuru is known as grand father of the Japanese whisky industry. As a young man he travelled to Scotland to study Organic Chemistry at University of Glasgow during the summer of 1919. Later he started working in Hazelburn before it was absorbed by Springbank.
Tsuru means crane in Japanese and not surprisingly the decanter have been decorated with cranes. As we all know Nikka is discontinuing a lot of its releases and age statements, this one included. This crane is going to be missed.
