A massive step up in quality from the standard Hakushu 12 yrs, this 18yo is amazingly well-defined (as we've come to expect from Japanese whisky) with deliciously rounded fruit and cereal flavours, at times surprisingly reminiscent of the finest Irish potstill whisky (eg Redbreast 15yo).

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky Advocate

    Unlike their collegues in Scotland, Japanese distillers do not exchange stock for their blending requirements. This means that each distillery is set up to produce a wide range of styles. Hakushu uses four different types of malt (unpeated to heavy) run through four pairs of differently-shaped stills. Each single malt is a different blend of these bases. While still herbal, this example shows more sherried notes along with sour orange zest, tropical fruit, and some smoke. 90 Points

    One of the best single malt from Japan, come along with Yamazaki. Prices gone up a lot recently, but it's worth to try. Very difficult to find nowadays...Bought 3 bottles recently.
