Critic tasting note: "This golden, silky single malt mingles vanilla and honey with fresh apple and pear aromas. These notes are echoed on the palate alongside a wave of peat smoke. Add a splash of water to offset the modest but persistent alcohol heat and further coax out the fruity-smoky flavors." - 91/100 Enthusiast

Known as “the fresh Japanese whisky”, Hakushu is an herbal and gently smoky single malt from Suntory’s Mt. Kaikomagatake distillery. Thanks to a mountain microclimate of luxurious forests and water filtrated by rain and snow through ages-old granite rock, malt whiskies born here are blessed a rare softness and purity. Hakushu® 12 Year Old is the heart of the brand. Green with herbal notes, it is distilled in direct-fire pot stills, then aged in small white oak casks for 12 years or longer. The result is a sweet, velvety smokiness, with the scents of green leaves and fruits. Hakushu 12 Year Old is an ideal choice for those who want to enjoy a whisky with roundness, complexity and hint of smokiness.
