About The Hakushu 18 Year Old Single Malt Whisky
Fifty years after the construction of Yamazaki Distillery, Keizo Saji inherited his father’s vision and began construction of Suntory’s second distillery. Although inspired by traditional Scottish distilleries, both Torii and Saji envisioned a uniquely Japanese approach to distilling whisky.
As a result of the whisky’s slumber in Japan’s deep forests, Hakushu 18 Year Old Single Malt Japanese Whisky has a fruity aroma, with hints of orange, pear and dry smoke. Notes of pastries, baking spices, and honey buns dominate the palate, and lead to a finish accented by touches of smoke and cinnamon.
