Hakushu 2000 - 2012 Cask #EL41357

An around 12 years old Hakushu single cask aged in a hogshead cask. Bottled at 61% vol cask strength.

  • Nose: Peat, smoke, ashes, some dry ashy oak, honey, peat sweetness, dry grass
  • Mouth: Peat, a lot of licorice (root) and a mix of different woods and spiced tea
  • Finish: Long and warm with licorice again. Peat and smoke with some malt and vanilla.
Comment: Rather unusual Hakushu with the strong licorice note, but I like it a lot. Quite punchy with a high abv. and strong flavors all around.
