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 (1)
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.

Very smooth subtle lovable like a song on the palate absolute pleasure a must have for all malt lovers
unbelivably good - especially at this price
A good enough malt but not a particularly impressive upgrade from the 12yo, especially at its current very poor price point.
What a quaffer able whiskey finished a bottle on Xmas nite with two friends now found out the price but worth it
