Description

Due to limited stocks, this spirit is restricted to 3 bottles per customer.

One of four limited edition releases created to celebrate House of Suntory's 100th anniversary, this comes from the Hakushu distillery that produces a peated style that is rarely seen in Japanese Single Malts.

There's remarkable freshness here, entwined with the subtle peat which expresses itself as a sweet smokiness. Citrus and green apple, herbal notes. The smokiness along on the palate but doesn't overwhelm - balanced and ethereal. Honeyed notes building all the time. The precision and layered flavour profile here is extraordinary.

About this SPIRIT

The House of Suntory

The House of Suntory

Yamazaki was Japan’s first distillery, established in 1923 by Shinjiro Tori. Inspired by traditional Scottish whisky-making, but wanting to create something distinctly Japanese, Tori selected a site on the periphery of Kyoto, Japan’s ancient cultural centre.

Here, a unique, humid climate and high-quality water from Mount Tennozan’s springs come together in the production of very special whiskies: Japan’s oldest, and arguably some of its most well-known. Soft waters and frequent mists create ideal conditions for cask ageing here, as do hot summers and colder winters.

The distillery underwent a significant renovation in the late 1980s, which gave the team the ability to produce a variety of whisky styles, including single malts, for which they have now become famous on the global stage.
