Suntory Hakushu 12 years



Hakushu 12 Year Old is one of the top selling bottles of whisky produced by Suntory. If you like the peated flavour of Scottish single malt whiskies, then Hakushu will blow your away! The Hakushu line stands among other top selling Suntory products including favorites such as the Yamazaki and Hibiki. Hakushu distillery is located in an area surrounded by forests at the foot of the Southern Japan Alps. It’s noted for producing the most heavily peated of Japanese whiskies. The flavour is most closely compared to Highlands Scotch, only with a closer attention to detail that only comes from the meticulous pursuit of perfection by Japanese distillers.

Hukashu distillery is the second distillery of Suntory. It was established in 1973 by the great Shinjiro Torii and is located 700 meters high, surrounded by expansive forests and Mt. Kaikomagatake. It is one of the highest located distillers in the World (by comparison the highest Scottish distilleries are on 355 meters) which contributes to the malt’s mild refreshing taste and crisp citrus aromas. Because of the high elevation the Whisky ages more slowly and with a lesser influence of wood on the spirits. Unlike at Yamazaki (the first distillery of Suntory) they mainly focus on ex-bourbon and hogshead barrels. They only use wooden wash backs, which helps take advantage of the site’s natural bounty.
