Suntory Pure Malt “Hokuto”. Aged 12 years. 40%abv


Nose: A dreamy mix of gentle oak, vanilla, cream, tropical fruits such as banana, papaya (paw paw) and guava.
Palate: Smooth and creamy mouth feel and basically follows the nose, with some white pepper spice thrown in.
Finish: Warming and of medium length. Spicy, oaky and herbaceous.
Last Word: I have loved this whisky from the moment I opened the bottle.This was great value at about 20 euros in Japan. Such a shame it was discontinued
