Professional Wine Reviews for Suntory The Hakushu Whisky Single Malt 12 Year Japanese Whiskey

Rated 92 by Decanter
Golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of honeyed raisin toast and spicy nougat with a satiny, fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a long, mouthwatering peppery spice and mineral accented finish. An appetizing whisky. (ultimate Beverage Challenge)
Rated 90 by Wine Enthusiast
Fans of smoky Islay Scotches will enjoy this smoky single malt that’s made at Suntory’s Hakashu Distillery, which is “surrounded by forest at the foot of the Southern Japan Alps.” Despite the delicate aromas of tropical fruit and light peat, the smoke note is considerably amplified on the palate, especially on the resonant finish, where it pushes those dainty fruit tones completely off the map.

Additional Information on Suntory The Hakushu Whisky Single Malt 12 Year Japanese Whiskey

Producer: Suntory

Country: Japan

For those looking for something a little different from their wines, then Japan is an ideal location to look to. The two key national drinks of the country – sake rice wine, and plum wine – are equally delicious, unique and aromatic, and are becoming more and more popular in the west as our fascination with this far east country continues to grow. Plum wines are made in a similar way to grape based wines, but the result is quintessentially Japanese, as they are aromatic, sweet and flavorful, whilst being light and utterly drinkable. Sake, too, is light and dry, an excellent accompaniment to Japanese cuisine, and contains as much variety and interesting features as any other type of wine. Both the plums and the rice required to make such drinks grow in a wide range of regions of Japan, and as such, each region has their own style, making them an interesting set of drinks to explore.
