Whiskies (12)

Hakushu 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Japan - 43.00%
7 What you nose is not what you get. The palate is rather coarse as much as the nose is subtle. Water cuts the edges.

Single Malt - Japan - 43.00%
7 A perfectly balanced dram. Fruit and spices mingle gently.

Hakushu 12 Years Old

Hakushu 12 Years Old Pure Malt
Single Malt - Japan - 43.00%
8 A beautifully structured, appetising, whisky. Captivating.

Hakushu 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Japan - 43.00%
7 Less sweet and fruity on the palate than the nose led you to expect. The balance is not there. Water makes it more bitter.

Hakushu 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Japan - 43.00%
7 A colourful character, lively and dancing on nose and palate.

Hakushu 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Japan - 43.00%
7 Another lighter one which only gets going in the middle of the mouth.

Hakushu 1982 Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Japan - 61.00%
7 I would love this whisky if it had a little less wood. I want to love it anyway, but in the end the wood defeats me.

Hakushu 1984 White Oak Cask
Single Malt - Japan - 61.00%
8 Its edgy assertiveness might bother aesthetes but I warm to a whisky that knows its own mind.

Hakushu 1988 Bourbon Cask
Single Malt - Japan - 61.00%
8 Lean, limber and characteristically smoky. A clear sense of Hakushu malt without heavy wood influence.

Hakushu 30th Anniversary Bottling
Single Malt - Japan - 43.00%
8 A beautifully composed whisky. No aggression, but a great sense of authority.

Scotch Malt Whisky Society Hakushu 1981, 21 Years Old, 120.1
Single Malt - Japan - 60.70%
8 A very enigmatic malt. Lighter in body but drier and more assertive in flavour than Yamazaki. A digestif.
