My Handcrafted Opinions on Whiskies, Distilleries and Other Related Stuff

Hakushu 18 year old

This was one of the harder to find Japanese whiskies in 101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die and possibly a bit of a disappointment because of that.  The nose is nice with lemon, sugar cookie and sweet malt.  The taste is at first quite crisp and clean, then becoming oaky.  In the finish the oak builds and drys out.  With some water I got more out of it, the taste had some more fruity notes, some pepper and I could taste the peat in the finish.  Did not quite work for me.... overly woody perhaps with not enough of the sweetness from the nose in the taste for my palate to balance out.
