Suntory is one of the largest makers of alcoholic beverages in the world. Its products include such favorites as the Yamazaki and Hibiki, and of course, the Hakushu, which remains just as popular. This 12-year-old is an excellent Japanese Whisky, distilled at Hakushu distillery – an area surrounded by forests at the foot of the Southern Japan Alps. If you have never tried Hakushu before, this is an excellent start!
Nose: Toasted barley, seed & nut loaf, chopped almonds, and a little bit of barrel char. Hints of milk chocolate and dried grass bring sweetness.
Palate: Much more fruit on the palate, but it's by no means a sweet whisky. Still rich, herbaceous, and grassy, with a waft of smoke along the way.
Finish: Quite short, though enjoyable with orange peel and a touch of minerals.
Standard Drinks: 24
