A green and crunchy entry in the Hakushu Range, combining whisky of a wide variety of ages, from across the range of casks used by the distillery to create a gently smoky dram, packed with fruity flavour.Tasting Notes (1)

Tasting Notes by Andy M
Quite herbaceous. Green fruit, mint, cucumber, pine, grassy, spearmint. Just loads of green fruit in this one.
Loads of green things coming out of here! Mint, cucumber, green fruit, grapefruit and just a touch of smoke at the back. Dave Broom got yuzu…I’ve never heard of yuzu….
Light, delicate, refreshing and some subtle smoke.
This is so easy to drink. It’s fresh, easy going (almost too easy) and just divine. I wrote delicious at the top and circled it! That’s a big thumb up in my world.
More from Hakushu
Under-rated in my opinion- mainly, it’s very interesting in flavour, not a deep layered whisky but also unlike most, so I liked it for that reason
A young lively bright whisky. On the nose: a cool breathe of mint and vanilla coming from the strong interaction with American oak, the Japanese change of seasons is truly present in this malt. Floral perfume, melon. Some hints of smoke and earthy moss. On the palate: creamy and clear as spring water, very in line with the nose. Not very deep, but lively and focussed. It is said to contain a lightly peated young spirit above 8yo and a strongly peated spirit above 18yo. The younger whisky sets the tone: a great serene character which reflects the pine forests around the distillery (and less complex than the Hakushu 12yo).
A truly special whisky. It's very Green, a start that commences with a fruity mouth like biting info a fresh apple after settling swallowing ice cold water with lime and mint in it.... Then a subtle lapsang souchong flavoured shortbread finish. I can't do this justice and I'm normally very verbose
This is our favourite Japanese whisky. It is clean and refreshing. We once visited the distillery where Hakushu was produced, and fell in love with this. They did something called 'highball from the wood' using Hakushu, which was sublime. Last year, we discovered as its popularity soared, Suntory had run out of the liquid and stopped shipping Hakushu as well as Yamazaki. I was therefore very pleased to find a reasonably priced bottle of Hakushu on Whisky Exchange.
Tried this malt of the month, and it's the first time I've tried a Japanese malt. I'm a peat fan usually, however I was surprised at how nice this malts was, especially with a splash of water. Not a complete convert but will sample and try and be more open minded when it comes to my favourite tipple. Living in Scotland their is an abundance of superb whisky, but must admit if this was a blind tasting I would put this in the highland speyside category
