Quote from internet
The founder, Masataka Taketsuru, travelled to Scotland in 1918 to learn the process of distilling Scotch whisky first hand. He studied organic chemistry under Prof. T. S. Patterson[citation needed] at the University of Glasgow and malt whisky production at the Hazelburn distillery, in Campbeltown near the Mull of Kintyre. He married Jessie Roberta ("Rita") Cowan, the daughter of a Glasgow doctor, and returned with her to Japan in 1920. In 1923 he joined Kotobukiya (currently Suntory) and helped to establish a distillery before starting Nikka in 1934.

After their deaths, the company was run by their adoptive son, Takeshi Taketsuru, who expanded its business substantially.

Black Nikka Special
42% – 72cl
Blended Whisky

The Black Nikka Special also features the “King of Blenders” label, and remains one of the most popular whisky brands in Japan today. The Japanese often enjoy this blend as a mizuwari, meaning on rocks with added mineral water, which is more suitable for accompanying meals.

taiwanese whiskey? it's like pitting seagull against GS :lol:
the Taiwanese has Japanese pride. The KAVALAN is really quite delicious. The fragrance from the port cast really no horse run. Nicely intoxicated after 2-3 rounds but clear as a blue sky with no hangover the next day. Highly recommended. :)

I love whiskey too. Mostly scotch whiskey. Didn't know there's whiskey from Japan. How is the taste like compared to scotch? I like my whiskey neat undiluted. Usually I will inhale the smell of my whiskey before drinking it. Taste better that way.
