Japanese distillery Hakushu’s Single Malt 25 YO was declared World’s Best Single Malt 2020 by Whisky Magazine.
Owned by Japanese drinks giant Suntory group, Hakushu was built in 1973 and specialises in making whiskies with fruity, lightly smoked flavours.
The Hakushu Single Malt 25 YO is described as light, fruity and smokey, an earlier release of the Japanese whisky with the same age statement won the title of World’s Best Single Malt 2018.
Every year, the Whisky Magazine announces results of ots whisky awards in a gala dinner, but this this year the results were announced through a live feed on Facebook and Twitter because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The award for the World’s Best Single Cask 2020 went to the Scotch distillery Tamdhu, the winning whisky is described as having hints of fresh raspberries and citrus fruits, alongside a touch of banana and clotted cream, finished with rich sherry, brown sugar and a whisper of vanilla.
The award for World’s Best Blended Limited Release went to Japanese distillery Chichibu Ichiro, its Malt Blended Whisky Limited Edition 2020 won this award third year in a row.
Meanwhile, the award of Best Blended Malt went to MacNair’s Whisky Lum Reek Blended Scotch Whisky 21 YO.
