An awesome 18 year old Japanese whisky from the Suntory’s mountain forest Hakushu distillery, nestled deep in Mt. Kaikomagatake, Suntory Single Malt Whisky Hakushu is the fresh and gently smoky single malt whisky with herbal notes that is the revelation of Japanese single malts.. Milled and mashed, with water sourced from the Ojira and Jingu Rivers. A limited edition bottle, presented in a wooden box. This is a perfect addition to your whisky collection.
Four seasons in high altitude is praised by the most curious whisky connoisseurs and lovers of gastronomy. Its crisp and vibrant feel, unique in a single malt whisky, enlivens and liberates your senses. Becoming more difficult to find due to the Japanese whisky crisis. Comes with an elegant display case.
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.
