The Hakushu 12 Single Malt Japanese Whisky

The first segment(Mostly not available on google search)

Occasions, tips, alternates, cocktails, food pairings, SJ's Rating, Feel.

SJ's Rating- Top Shelf 
Highly refined Japanese single malt. Just as expected smooth, fruity, slightly peaty and so tasty. It is so light and smooth you don't feel like you are having a 43% ABV golden liquid πŸ˜€
Occasion- Casual
SJ's Pro tip- Great as an after-dinner drink because it is smooth, light & sweet
Alternates- Hibiki Harmony fits the bill as an alternate. 
Cocktail- N/A
Food Pairing- Nepali food (Spicy chicken curry, pickle, beaten rice)

Feel- Light & enlightened πŸ˜‡

The second segment(Technical details that are mostly available on a google search)

The Hakashu distillery was established in 1973 as stated in it's website. It is one of the highest distilleries located at an elevation of over 700 meters. The magic happens when the pure air, water and unhurried distillation process meet that making this golden liquid. 
The website states that The Hakushu 12 is a green and fresh whisky. It lives the four seasons in high altitude where its flavor comes from. This whisky truely libertes your senses from its beautiful aroma to fruity, smokey aroma and silky smooth finish.
