    Hakushu 12 Years 700ml


    Hakushu 12 Year Old

     (70cl, 43%)

    Hakushu 12 Year Old Bottling Note

    This wonderful peated Japanese single malt whisky hails from Hakushu distillery, owned by Suntory. The distillery resides in the forests of Mt. Kaikomagatake, with the original Hakushu distillery built in 1973. Another building was added in 1981, called Hakushu Higashi. Rather fittingly, it boasts a fresh and foresty flavour profile.

    Tasting Note 

    Nose: Toasted barley, seed & nut loaf, chopped almonds and a little bit of barrel char. Hints of milk chocolate and dried grass bring sweetness.

    Palate: Much more fruit on the palate, but it’s by no means a sweet whisky. Still rich, herbaceous and grassy, with a waft of smoke along the way.

    Finish: Quite short, though enjoyable with orange peel and a touch of minerals.

    Nikka The Barrel


    Nikka Whisky From The Barrel

     (50cl, 51.4%)

    Nikka From The Barrel Bottling Note

    The award-winning Nikka Whisky From The Barrel blend is absolutely full of flavour. Bottled at 51.4% ABV. The blend combines both single malt and grain whiskies from the Miyagikyo and Yoichi distilleries, which are then married in a huge variety of casks, including bourbon barrels, sherry butts and refill hogsheads. A huge depth of flavour in this stunning Japanese whisky. We can’t recommend this enough.

    Tasting Note

    Nose: Medium-body with good balance. There are notes of cut flowers and fresh fruits, spice and a little oak.

    Palate: Full-bodied and punchy. There is plenty of winter spice and toffee, a little caramel and vanilla and a good mouthful of fruit.

    Finish: Long, warming and fruity with a little oaken spice.
