THE HAKUSHU 12YR JAPANESE WHISKY 750 SUNTORY

Constructed in 1973 in the middle of the deepest forests of the Japanese Southern Alps, the Hakushu distillery is easily one of the highest in the world. That altitude and the majestic forest that surrounds the distillery—teeming with innumerable flora and fauna—create a very particular micro-climate for the production of this whisky. I present Hakushu 12, straight from the untouched, luxurious forests, mountains and water purified by the filtration of rain and snow through thousand-year-old granite rocks. Beginning with aromas of persimmon, apple, sweet smoke, green grape, caramel, citrus, clean grass, yellow plum, nut milk and honey, the scents are complex, intriguing and quite tantalizing. The mouth-feel is so rich and creamy; wow! The taste follows the nosing, deliberating each aroma as a flavor with lovely patience, building to include scrumptious oak nuance, ginger, toasty malt, floral sweetness, kaffir lime and chamomile. The finish is a short manifestation of the flavors with a spicy lingering aftertaste. This whisky is fantastic; try it neat, with a splash of water or an ice cube and enjoy.
