From Suntory's mountain forest distillery, nestled deep in Mt. Kaikomagatake, Hakushu Whisky is the fresh and gently smoky single malt whisky with herbal notes that is the revelation of Japanese single malts.
Straight from the untouched forests, mountains and pure waters of the Southern Japanese Alps, Hakushu is a green and fresh whisky, praised by the most curious whisky connoisseurs and lovers of gastronomy.
This deep gold colored whisky has a nose of ripe pear, dried mint, and oregano aromas with a hint of smoke. On the palate, a harmonious blend of jasmine, mango, quince, and menthol flavors lead into a long finish with pleasant smoke notes and hint of bitterness. Hakushu's crisp and vibrant feel, unique in a single malt whisky, enlivens and liberates your senses. (from Suntory)
