Hakushu 1997 - 2009, 12yo, Whisky Live! Japan #BJ 41521

This twelve year old single cask Hakushu was bottled for Whisky Live! Japan in 2009. At cask strength with 56% and matured in a hogshead cask.

  • Nose: Subdued oak, plenty fruity, acacia honey, flowery-grassy with hay
  • Mouth: fruity and grassy, honey + pepper, light oak
  • Finish: Short'ish but clean. Very light oak, sugar, floral with pepper
Comment: Clean and simple but quite enjoyable. Feels more Scottish than Japanese in my opinion.
