The Hakushu Single Malt Japanese Whisky Aged 12 Years appears a champagne gold color in the glass. The nose reveals notes of basil, pine needle, and green apple followed by a palate of sweet pear, mint, and kiwi. The finish shows notes of green tea and subtle smoke.
100th Anniversary Limited Edition Design. The Hakushu 12 Single Malt is made up of carefully selected malt whiskies all aged for a minimum of 12 years in various casks, created in honor of Suntory Whisky's centenary. Nestled deep in Mt. Kaikomagatake, The Hakushu Distillery draws on its unique natural surroundings. The illustration on the bottle captures the Hakushu distillery in soft hues of verdant green, representing the forest surrounding the distillery. Our blenders work with peat, while softening the palate using the exceptional mountain water of the area, filtered through ancient granite rocks. This creates a fresh and gentle smoky single malt whisky, a true revelation in Japanese single malts that must be experienced.
