A fine 12 year old Japanese whisky from the distillery of Hakushu.

Although some might say it does not compare to its older siblings the 18 and 25 year old it is none the less smashing stuff, being named the best Japanese Single Malt 12 Years and younger for a reason!

Hakushu is the second Single Malt distillery from Japan’s first and most awarded Japanese Whisky producer Suntory.

Inspired by Japan’s natural forests, Suntory created 200 acres of nature sanctuary in which to produce Hakushu Single Malt. A single sip transports you to the harmonious forests of Japan.

This whisky is best served neat or on the rocks as it would be enjoyed in Japan.

For the innovators, try with a large sphere of crystal clear ice and experience the true Japanese way. Otherwise, mix long with ice and soda, garnished with mint in a Forest Highball.

Distillery: Hakushu

Hokuto, Japan

The Hakushu Distillery was founded half a century after Yamazaki. Keizo Saji inherited his father’s vision in his quest for innovation and constructed this second Suntory distillery in 1973.

The majestic forest that surrounds the Hakushu Distillery shelters an abundance of plant varieties reflecting the many expressions of Japanese nature.

The malt whiskies born here are simultaneously blessed with a very particular microclimate, verdant forests, and water offering a rare softness and purity, only made possible by filtration of rain and snow through thousand-year-old granite rocks.

I was surprised by this whisky as I was expecting it to be a bit harsh but it was smooth and had some interesting smooth flavours which were enhanced by the mild peatyness.
Pleasant surprise.
