100th Anniversary Limited Edition. The Hakushu 18 Peated Malt is made up of carefully selected malt whiskies all aged for a minimum of 18 years in various casks, created in honour of Suntory Whisky's centenary. The Hakushu Distillery blenders work with peat, while softening the palate using the exceptional mountain water of the area, filtered through ancient granite rocks. Refined and elegant, this centennial Hakushu Peated Malt brings smoke that is less strong, never dominant and in typical Japanese style, more complex and gentle. The result is a spicy, peppery welcome, a slow wave of smoke that deepens as it reveals its herbaceous notes and green fruity undertones.
Nose: Vibrant with top notes of sage, ripe green apple and hints of ripe pineapple.
Palate: Complex smoke revealing layers of herbal, grapefruit and acacia honey notes.
Finish: Clean smoke that lingers with undernotes of fresh green citrus.
