product Details

Hakushu 1981 "Kioke Shikomi" Pure Malt 

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.
