Suntory Hakushu Heavily Peated Japanese Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1148643

Talisker 18 fans take note: Japan's premier peated whisky distillery, Hakushu, has finally brought their heavily-peated expression to the United States. We're not talking Ardbeg or Laphroaig peat here because "heavy" for the delicate and elegant flavors of Hakushu means a level of smoke more along the lines of Talisker -- there's still richness and soft fruit along with the smoke. The balance in the whisky is what stands out the most. The smoke is bright on the entry, but it slowly morphs into a saline and almost minerally white wine flavor (like a Sancerre) as it makes its way to the finish. There's less richness and more peat than one would find in the Talisker 18, but the flavors are cleaner, more pronounced, and more polished than the Diageo release. This is a fantastic option for those who like smoke, but don't want to be punched in the face with it. A lovely new option for Americans longing to taste more Japanese expressions.
