Hakushu 12

Country: Japan
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 43%
Score: 93 points

Hakushu Distillery is part of the Suntory family, and its single malt is completely different from Suntory’s Yamazaki malts. The nose has light spices, and is slightly grassy and nutty. The taste starts off with a lemon-lime citrus note that fades to reveal a touch of pears, grass, and a hint of campfire smoke. The finish is gingery with touches of black tea with honey and lemon.
