This is a 3cl sample from the original bottling of:
Suntory Hakushu Distiller's Reserve
A combination of whisky of a wide range of ages, Distiller’s Reserve is a gently smoky dram from Hakushu, bursting with fruity flavour with notes of herbs and green apples.
- Mixed Herb
The Perfect Measure
A young lively bright whisky. On the nose: a cool breathe of mint and vanilla coming from the strong interaction with American oak, the Japanese change of seasons is truly present in this malt. Floral perfume, melon. Some hints of smoke and earthy moss. On the palate: creamy and clear as spring water, very in line with the nose. Not very deep, but lively and focussed. It is said to contain a lightly peated young spirit above 8yo and a strongly peated spirit above 18yo. The younger whisky sets the tone: a great serene character which reflects the pine forests around the distillery (and less complex than the Hakushu 12yo).
A truly special whisky. It's very Green, a start that commences with a fruity mouth like biting info a fresh apple after settling swallowing ice cold water with lime and mint in it.... Then a subtle lapsang souchong flavoured shortbread finish. I can't do this justice and I'm normally very verbose
This is our favourite Japanese whisky. It is clean and refreshing. We once visited the distillery where Hakushu was produced, and fell in love with this. They did something called 'highball from the wood' using Hakushu, which was sublime. Last year, we discovered as its popularity soared, Suntory had run out of the liquid and stopped shipping Hakushu as well as Yamazaki. I was therefore very pleased to find a reasonably priced bottle of Hakushu on Whisky Exchange.
Tried this malt of the month, and it's the first time I've tried a Japanese malt. I'm a peat fan usually, however I was surprised at how nice this malts was, especially with a splash of water. Not a complete convert but will sample and try and be more open minded when it comes to my favourite tipple. Living in Scotland their is an abundance of superb whisky, but must admit if this was a blind tasting I would put this in the highland speyside category
My son bought me this for XMAS knowing I love Highland single Malts. I had heard of it but never tasted any Japanese malts. Wow, I have to say it is the smoothest finished malt I have ever tasted. Try it you will not be disappointed.
