“Whisky, like a beautiful woman, demands appreciation. You gaze first, then it’s time to drink.” - Haruki Murakami. Hakushu, aged twelve years, is a Suntory whisky distilled in the Southern Alps of Japan. Pear, oak, light peat, spice - like a forest of delicious notes.
Hakushu - Forget the green beer this St. Patrick's Day; this is the 'it' drink for those with a discerning palate. Japanese whisky couldn't be more trendy now in the top bars and restaurants from LA to Miami to New York to Chicago. Hakushu is the smoky brother in the Suntory whisky family and the first and original Japanese whisky. This year marks 90 years of top-quality whisky production. Distilled using the finest water up in the Japanese alps, it is available nationwide for $60.00.
