What's in a name? Hakushu 12 Year Old 43.5% whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Japan. Were it from America it would be spelled Hakushu 12 Year Old 43.5% whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Light and crisp with fresh notes of cut hay and sweet mixed peels, a little hazelnut and barley malt.
Palate: Clean with notes of cut fruits, gentle barley malt and smoke. A floral character with citrus zest.
Finish: Sweet and spicy.

this is an outstanding 12 yo whisky. I think the description by the chaps of Master of Malt explains the character of this whisky very well. Its fresh, crisp character with notes of freshly cut hay makes it something really special. An absolute pleasure to drink imo. I love it and would probably go as far as to say it's the best 12 yo whisky I have had the pleasure of drinking (and I have tried a few)

Light peat and smoke throughout. Nose like a rum raising ice cream, rick and peaty on the palate with a candied finish.
