From the Hakushu distillery in the foothills of Mount Kaikomagatake comes their  Single malt whisky, a no-age-statement expression, that captures the smoky, herbaceous characteristics of their whiskies. Both lightly-peated and heavily-peated malts were used for this complex and deeply enjoyable whisky. This bottling only available at Distillery.

Tasting Notes

Nose: The herbs are very up front with this one. Peppermint, pine and pleasant grassy notes. Cucumber and melon round out the nose.

Palate: All the notes on the nose swim effortlessly through the palate, the mint developing sweeter notes as it goes on. Citrus zest also pops in to say hello.

Finish: A waft of smoke appears during the long finish.

Overall: This shall make a fantastic Highball. Oh yes it shall.

This whisky is up there at the top of my list for value for money and excellent taste so smooth from start to finish.
