A green and crunchy entry in the Hakushu Range, combining whisky of a wide variety of ages, from across the range of casks used by the distillery to create a gently smoky dram, packed with fruity flavour.Tasting Notes (1)
Suntory Hakushu Distiller's Reserve
- Mixed Herb
Tasting Notes by Andy M
Quite herbaceous. Green fruit, mint, cucumber, pine, grassy, spearmint. Just loads of green fruit in this one.
Loads of green things coming out of here! Mint, cucumber, green fruit, grapefruit and just a touch of smoke at the back. Dave Broom got yuzu…I’ve never heard of yuzu….
Light, delicate, refreshing and some subtle smoke.
This is so easy to drink. It’s fresh, easy going (almost too easy) and just divine. I wrote delicious at the top and circled it! That’s a big thumb up in my world.
More from Suntory Hakushu
I love Hakushu.
Unlike the Yamazaki and Hibiki, this one is a lot less floral on the nose and a lot more smooth and balanced. Makes for a fantastic whisky.
What a whisky! Grassy, herbal and fresh with a reassuring smokey finish. I am a massive fan of Japanese whisky and this was my first. I would always try to keep a bottle on standby. Refreshingly different and sheer class.
Hint of mint and some yuzu. Most of all I am just amazed by how smooth it is. Leaves a slight smokey burn afterwards. Nice and warm. Definitely a good drink when you want to have a quiet night.
Too sharp on the draw, but mellows into smoke. It's decent, but the price point is too high for the initial taste.
