Hakushu Single Malt 12 Year Old
This wonderful peated Japanese single malt whisky hails from Hakushu distillery, owned by Suntory.
Nose: Light and grassy and slightly stony to start. In time there’s sweet persimmon and nut.
Taste: Pure and very clean. Sweet lime, green fruits then a hint of smoke and a buttery meadow sweet/chamomile note. Light to the point of fragility.
Finish: Honey, lemon and a little ginger.
