Two New Releases from Yamazaki and Hakushu

Yamazaki Smoky Batch The First
HED47001 / 70cl / 43%
£520.00
A limited edition Yamazaki released exclusively for Japanese travel retail.

Following on from the Yamazaki Tsukuriwake Peated Malt release in 2022, ‘Smoky Batch’ is a rare peated version of Yamazaki. Expect notes of manuka honey with baked fruits and a gentle smoke on the nose and palate.

Hakushu Japanese Forest Bittersweet Edition
HED47002 / 70cl / 43%
£420.00
A limited edition Hakushu released in late 2023, exclusively in Japanese travel retail.

Complex and sprightly with notes of citrus oil, orange marmalade and cacao. Balance and harmony are the watchwords here. The finish is rich and lingering with notes of espresso and a hint of bitterness.
