Drink Review: Suntory Hakushu Distiller’s Reserve Whisky

Whisky Tasting Notes

Suntory Hakushu Distiller’s Reserve Nose: Not a huge amount going on: wafts of pine air softly breathe overhead, as Mojitos and menthol cigarettes are enjoyed in the post-storm sunshine of a woodland retreat.

Suntory Hakushu Distiller’s Reserve Taste: Tucking into under-ripe fresh fruit salad, regretting the lack of bacon barm, but convinced it’s the start of a new you. Good quality Chardonnay comes forward with gentle peppermint holding its hand. This would make a brilliant boozy birthday brunch with salmon, cucumber and mint blinis.

Suntory Hakushu Distiller’s Reserve Finish: A long, subtle finish; it’s a doting, mixed-race marriage between spritely Japanese Yuzu and wet English pear orchard that love each other but like to argue.

Flavour 7/10    Value 7/10
