Hakushu Distiller's Reserve

Peated Single Malt — Japan

Tasted January 24, 2021
3.25 out of 5 stars
The expert review is spot on, but doesn’t mention the strong malt forward character that strikes you first. Or second, after the urinous hue, perhaps. Green apples and pear drops is exactly right, with a faint peaty and green turf note on the finish. Quite pleasant, but not a real favourite for this drinker.
