product Details

Hakushu 1981 "Kioke Shiomi" Pure Malt x 4

There is a great deal of debate as to whether or not this is a single malt, Suntory were renowned for using the term "Pure Malt" for both single malts and blended malts and a high number of bloggers have stated that this is 100% Hakushu. 

The translation of ‘Kioke Shikomi’ seems strange because although it means “matured in a wooden tub”, 'kioke’ normally refers to a tub used for making sake.

Hakushu 1991 "Furudaru Shiage" Pure Malt x 4 

There is a great deal of debate as to whether or not this is a single malt, Suntory were renowned for using the term "Pure Malt" for both single malts and blended malts and a high number of bloggers have stated that this is 100% Hakushu. 

The translation of ‘Furudaru Shiage’ means old barrel finish, there is also some text to imply that it has been filtered through bamboo charcoal. 

Please note there will be an shipping charge for eight bottles.
