"This honey-hued single malt is soft and perfectly balances vanilla-caramel sweetness and peat smoke on the nose and palate. Add a splash of branch water to offset alcohol heat on the drying, spiced finish.."

"Unlike their colleagues in Scotland, Japanese distillers do not exchange stock for their blending requirements. This means that each distillery is set up to produce a wide range of styles. Hakushu uses four different types of malt (unpeated to heavy) run through four pairs of differently-shaped stills. Each single malt is a different blend of these bases. While still herbal, this example shows more sherried notes along with sour orange zest, tropical fruit, and some smoke. Complex."
