Suntory Hakushu Distiller's Reserve is the peated counterpart to the Yamazaki Distiller's Reserve, it's without a direct parallel in Scotland as the whisky has a distinctly Lowland style, yet this is a mix of both lightly and heavily peated single malts. The result is an affordable no-age-statement expression, that captures the smoky, herbaceous characteristics of the distillery for a complex and deeply enjoyable whisky. Unfortunately this is a weak imitation of the power and balance of the phenomental Hakushu 12 but as that bottle retails at between £170-£240 this is a great alternative
Suntory Hakushu Distiller’s Reserve is a single malt whisky from the Hakushu whisky distillery. Rated an average of 4.6 out of 5 by 71 reviewers and available from Master of Malt for only £62.5, falling slightly short of liquid gold but this in a solid everyday single malt whisky.
