No Age Is Good Age For Hakushu And Yamazaki


Share on Pinterest


Suntory has released a pair of no-age single malt whiskies – the Hakushu Distiller’s reserve and Yamazaki Distiller’s Reserve – each containing whisky which has been aged between eight and 20 years. Hakusku’s liquid comes from a young lightly peated malt with an heavily peated 18-year-old American whisky blend resulting in a 43% alcohol content [86 proof] concoction that is said to have a peppermint, melon and cucumber nose and a grapefruit, lemon or thyme flavor. Meanwhile, the 43% alcohol content [86 proof] Yamazaki spent its time in sherry, mizunara, French oak Bordeaux and American oak casks before emerging with a cherry and strawberry nose along with peach, coconut and raspberry flavors.

Both Hakushu and Yamazaki will release in the UK market for $70 [42 pounds] apiece in April 2014.
