“Nice but a hell more subtle than Yamazaki. Although Hakushu single malt is supposed to be peated I get no peat on this one”This dram has a gold-like color.
Nose (89): more than average. honey, floral, citrus, peat, wax. Interesting but more subtle than Yamazaki.
Taste (89): powerful, oily. honey, floral, wood, spices, pepper, vanilla, smoke, citrus. Nice. Really complex taste.
Finish (89): longer than average. honey, citrus.
