Nikka debuts a new addition to their existing portfolio today, November 8. Only it’s not an introduction into a new bottle of nectar unfortunately, but yet again another canned highball. One could possible say that this Taketsuru highball is somewhat premium compared to other highballs that adorn the shelves of convenience stores and supermarkets nation wide. Like the previous Taketsuru 12 year-old highball, this is somewhat true if you set it side by side with lets say a Torys highball, but once again, as discussed on previous posts, the majority of serious drinkers tend to cringe when seeing a perfectly good malt being drank mixed with something other than a bit of water. Regardless, the market and popularity for such a beverage is never fading, which I feel I have said too many times before, and this is evident in Suntory’s upcoming winter launch of a Yuzu flavoured Torys highball that was easily predicated. In conjunction with the debut of this non-aged Taketsuru highball, Nikka is giving away to 200 winning entrants two cans per person. For those of you who are not fortunate enough to win and wish to give it a go, according to Nikka as of today all major convenience stores will have it for sale while stocks last.
