First Impression: Hakushu 25 Years Old No. 2297

A.K.A. “One fine picnic date”

A lovely merging of pine, cucumber, vanilla and subtly oaky smoke on the nose. A slight earthiness and delicately smoked bacon on the backend.

On the palate, honey, cucumber, green apples and sugar cured cucumbers.

A soft finish of spices. Such class and elegance. Silky pasture, a tender touch of vanilla and refreshing peat placing you on a summer field in shades of green.
