Hakushu 25 Bottling Note

A very rare and truly fabulous peated Japanese whisky from Hakushus. This 25 year old was awarded a Silver Medal at the Malt Maniac Awards in 2009, and whisky critic Jim Murray rated it 93 points out of a possible 100, saying he was "blown away" by it…

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A smouldering, smoky nose with toffee apples, rancio, Armagnac, ginger and nutmeg.

Palate: A rich, sherried palate with wood smoke, linseed, rhubarb and custard sweets, raspberries and walnut. A hint of spearmint develops.

Finish: A long, herbal, nutty finish with bittersweet oak on the tail.

Simply Sublime

light amber in color, nose of subtle peat and subtle white oak, flavors explodes in your mouth yet restraint in an understated elegance, soft white oak, silky and round, with spicy but long finish. Tremendous power and finesse with long elegant finish. I wonder if this is the Japanese oak they've been talking about? The taste remind me of eating best Toro Sushi, i.e. subtle silky flavors to meditate and be inspired! This style is so different than the overtly sweet sherry oak stuff. This is sublime. 96 points. This got #1 spot out of Macallan 25 #2 and Yamazaki 25 #3. Trio of 25-year-old's compared side by side at the Yamazaki Distillery, for about US$ 29 per shot, (maybe less than a "shot?)

Strong & Smoky, But Not As Complex As We Hoped

We tried this after the Kinclaith 40 year old, and to be honest were disappointed in comparison. It was great but lacked the complexity and smooth buttery oak like richness of the Kinclaith. It was good, but not amazing for us.
