“A real whisky experience from Japan with lots of fruits and spices over a delicate peat layer.”
Part of the Suntory stable, Hakushu creates peated malts that are used in Suntory blended whiskies. This heavily peated malt was bottled as a single malt and offers a really interesting proposal that won't disappoint you.
A fruity peaty experience. If you like you should try something from Caol Ila or Bunnahabhain.
This dram has a fino-like color.
Nose (90): more than average. peat, fruits, pears, strawberries, citrus. Really surprising nose.
Palate (90): smooth, powerful, oily. Peat, sweet, fruits, floral, pepper, citrus. Very spicy.
Finish (91): longer than average. peat, menthol, pepper, citrus.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Hakushu Heavily Peated with 90 points over 100.
