THE BAR: Hakushu 12 Years



Lime, basil, mint,

pepper and green tea

hakushu 12 review

Usually whisky is had after dinner but this one we find more appropriate as an aperitif for bringing about forest-like freshness to the nose. It may be a tad bright on the palate for some with notes of mint and basil followed by pepper. Finally, a short green tea finish. Although it is currently a hot property that’s soaring in price, we hoped for the Hakushu 12 to be more complex and rounded. Would I ever have more? Yes, a serving to remind myself on how distinctive this single malt is but another whole bottle? Probably not.
