The Hakushu 12 Year Old Single Malt Whisky tastes like an exotic Islay. 
 
The name Suntory virtually defines the beverage business in Japan. Founded in 1899 to import and distribute wine, they quickly branched out into their own products in 1907. In 1923 they stepped out again, this time in the sacrilegious effort of distilling a Single Malt Whisky in Japan. But the traditionalist of the spirit-loving West soon forgave them for the most pragmatic of reasons… they made great Whisky. 
 
The Hakushu brand was acquired and maintained to support Suntory’s premium Single Malt line up, and they are respected worldwide. The Hakushu 12 Year Old Single Malt Whisky is their finely crafted Single Malt offering in the classic Islay style
 
That means they import peat from the other side of the world to craft an authentic, smoky dram that often beats name brand Islays in blind taste tests. It has the light fruitiness of a Highlander with the earthiness and peat infusions of the Scottish islands. Bonsai!
