Hakushu 18 Year Old Single Malt Japanese Whisky
Hakushu distillery is found in the forest sanctuary at the foothills of the Japanese alps. This is an obscenely well balanced, complex and flavoursome 18 year old Japanese whisky from the Hakushu distillery, a malty, fruity whisky of real quality. Orange, pear and a dry smokiness. Fruit salad. Patisserie sweet, baked goods and baked goodness! Long and fruity with Manuka honey with subtle smokiness. A fantastic Japanese whisky that hits all the right notes.
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 subtle smoke.
