Hakushu 18 Year Old 

Suntory's other excellent distillery, which is often over-looked for Yamazaki.

Hakushu was built in 1973 at the foot of the Southern Japan Alps, a location deliberately chosen by Suntory to provide a contrast to the style of spirit produced at Yamazaki.

Interestingly, a second distillery was built in 1981 (referred to as Hakushu East) which has stills of varying shapes and sizes which are able to produce a wide range of distillate character. This is in contrast to the now-dormant old site (referred to as Hakushu West) which had 24 large stills identical in shape and size, but only capable of producing one particular style of distillate.

This particular bottle carries the discontinued style of packaging and is bottled at half a percentage higher than the modern release.
