Whisky Reviews for Hakushu Bourbon Barrel

9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.53 points

  1. wekke did not rate this whisky Expert Senior



    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt



    Nose:
    Creamy and sweet, some lemon drizzle cake and black forest honey, a
    litle coconut milk and buttery toffee. A touch of cooked banana and
    guava too.
    Palate:
    Creamy and thick with banana split, butterscotch and barrel char
    upfront. Hints of smoke, alongside melon and pineapple. A little
    allspice develops.
    Finish: Fruity and tangy with porridge oats and golden syrup.




  2. Thermidor scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    In my opinion this one beats the 12 and 18 year old Hakushus. Not by much but still.

    World whisky awards 2011 : Best japanese single malt NAS

  4. bull10298 scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    This is a parallel release to the Yamazaki Single Malt Bourbon Barrel and comes
    from Suntory?s second distillery of Hakushu, which is actually the largest
    operational malt whisky distillery in the world. As with the Yamazaki, this
    expression comprises various malts between 10 and 15 years of age which have
    been matured in former Bourbon barrels. Delicate and initially slightly reticent
    on the nose. Lemon, grapefruit and spice. Some gumminess. The palate is rounded
    and spicy, with banana, pineapple, hazelnuts and vanilla. Lingering lively
    ginger and subtle oak in the finish.

  5. TastyDram did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    A typical summertime dram from our Japanese friends. Fresh and fruity. It does not come with an age statement, though it is quite expensive. Count € 80 - €90. The 2013 edition is even more expensive. €110 aproximately.
    • Nose
      A hand carved oak fruit bowl, full of tropical fruits. Think of pineapple and coconut. Water adds bananas, citrus and melons. And off course some oak and vanilla. You'll discover even a bit of white pepper.
    • Taste
      Due to the ABV it is quite hot on the tongue. Yet the fruity flavors give it a fresh body. Green (sour) apples and bananas. And once again some melon and pineapple. At the end a faint hint of smoke.
    • Finish
      Short and crispy, like you've just had a bite of a Granny Smith apple.

  6. Myst111 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    takes some time until the flavors come through.
    • Nose
      Forest honey, banana, light sweet
    • Taste
      First creamy sweet, then some melon, in the background a hint of citrus fruits. Very little smoke.
    • Finish
      not the longest finish, but good. The citrus fruits from the button are in the foreground

  7. Titi94 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Tasting Notes by the Bottler:

    - Color: gold.

    - Aroma: tropical fruits, citrus, vanilla.

    - Taste: light, smooth.

    - Finish: refreshing, clean.

  8. Titi94 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Tasting notes & comments by LMDW: Particularly inspired, this limited edition Bourbon Barrel is a succession of moments all more poetic one than the other.
    • Nose
      Fine, delicate. Peat and smoke are planted on exotic fruits (banana, pineapple), malted barley and vanilla. Then, the ashes clearly evoke the hearth of the fireplace and the smoked meat and citrus zests are a powerful and explosive cocktail.Linden honey brings its heady aromas.
    • Taste
      With the same delicacy, she caresses the palate (malted barley, mousse, dark chocolate and lemon). Peat and barley come closer, peat making in this a return to the sources. An alternation of yellow and green tones highlights its freshness of expression.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet. White flowers (lily of the valley, lilac) appear. Evoke the moment cherry blossoms. One moment, time suspends its flight. A country and bucolic landscape appears to us. As a conclusion, the spicy tip (pepper, clove) enhances the vanilla and turns it into crème brûlée.
