Whisky Reviews for Hakushu 18-year-old

13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.15 points

  1. Claudio + Cats scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    The Hakushu 18 tastes like the grass from the lawnmower. Even worse is the 12er. Only the 25er is good, but with over 1500 no bargain. Afterwards, I gave away the last 18er, which I opened up, half-full. Shall drink, who wants, I do not do that to me. On Neudeutsch: You drink that, I support you, I find good. You drink, not me! Schmekke like salad of wet grass.

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    The nose is really good initially, but in contrary to most single malts this one gets less interesting by the minute. 84/85.
    • Nose
      Malt, peach, apple, cherry, lemon, smoke, caramel, honey and grass.
    • Taste
      Peach, smoke, caramel, lemon, honey, grass and tobacco.
    • Finish
      Caramel, smoke, ash and a nuttiness.

  6. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    I liked it a lot, there seems to be a good corner above average, good batch vllt?
    • Nose
      Great thing, you notice the typical Japanese grassy, ​​soft, slightly wet meadows, a bit of coast and salt, but also clearly sherry influence with red apple and some perfumed in the nose, berry bushes in the grass and fresh raspberries, toffee
    • Taste
      Class of the mixture, wild berries, orange oil, full of red apple with shell, very deep, cinnamon, pebbles, the grassy is of course still one of the main notes, honey, toffee and vanilla, some coastal air here
    • Finish
      Pretty long, the grassy remains, dry with the apple peel, light salt, a few tannins and cinnamon

  8. ovanpuyvelde did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This Whisky was sold for 230€ at Whisky Auction (September 2017).

  9. Thermidor scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Hakushu 18 is a very pleasant whisky and slightly more refined than the 12, but I had difficulties justifying the price difference between them on the quality of the whisky alone. (bought it back in 2012 when the price difference was about 40 euros)

    The current price for this bottle is an utter absurdity.
