Suntory are the gods of the Japanese whisky scene and their Hakushu line is amongst the most popular. The Hakushi distillery is hidden in the forests near the Japanese Alps and this particular offering is aged for 12 years. An exceptional single malt, Hakushu 12 year is a light and refreshing offering with hay and mixed peels on the nose and gentle barley malt, smokiness and hazelnut coming through in the taste. Sweetness is perfectly balanced against spice.
An award-winning offering, Yamazaki 18 Year Old is an exceptional Japanese single malt which is certainly worth of at least one taste. On the nose you’ll feel its thickness, with resinous notes, zesty citrus and a hint of sherry. When drinking you’ll enjoy an array of orchard fruits and spiced oak, paired with fragrant floral notes and sherry-infused peels. The finish is long with fruit and oak combining beautifully to create a memorable flavour.
