samples of THE HAKUSHU 25 YEAR OLD and the BALVENIE TUN BATCH 4
i came across a 25 year old hakushu ! the price is 900 euros and i would really like to taste it but i cannot afford it, so i thought that is a good idea to sample it and sell it to people who also want to taste it. i need 22 people to confirm that they want it before i buy it. the price will be 40 euros for a 3cl sample. plus shipping. if anyone is interested please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org .
also i m thinking of sampling the balvenie tun batch 4 . that will be 18 euros per 3cl sample.
the shipping with the fastest way possible from cyprus is with EMS DATAPOST COURIER which provides online tracking which i highly recommend but its 20 euros up to 1 kg . so if someone wants more than one the shipping will be way less
Without looking through pictures I can't remember if the Hakushu 25 is one I've tried, but I don't think so.
At any rate, the Hakushu line is completely different from the Yamazaki line, even though they're both from Suntory and bot versions of Hakushu I brought from Japan (10 and distillery only release) were universally loved by everyone who sampled them and there is something completely unique about the Hakushu that I've yet to discern in any other whisky.
I'd be in for this immediately if I weren't planning on going back to the distillery again, but highly recommend you guys giving this rare treat a try.
Anyone curious about Hakushu can now find Hakushu 12 at Total Wines stores.
I dont have any experience with japanese malts but i read very good reviews about the 25 year old hakushu and i m very curious. The hakushu line is meant to be smoked ? Any similarities with the islay malts or completely different? Also i m thinking to try the yamazaki malt? Which one is the best to start?
My favorite Yamazaki is the cheapest one, the Yamazaki 12, and it's even available at Total Wines for less than it is in Japan. Bear in mind when I say it's my favorite, I haven't cared for many older bottlings, and gave my drinks of 18 and 1984 to my friend after a few sips. The NAS is horrible, even though the NAS Hakushu is pretty good, at the same price no less.
Yamazaki 12 is absolutely fantastic, both before, during and after. I'm having some now and it's one of my top favorites.
The Hakushu's I've had are in the picture and the two I really love are the little distillery release on the left and the now discontinued 10.
There is something about Hakushu that when I taste it, the only comparison I can think of is to say it tastes like Hakushu. It's some incredibly good stuff and I think that before much longer the whole whisky drinking world will know about it.
