Hakushu Distiller's Reserve is a Japanese whisky from Suntory's Hakushu distillery. Like Yamazaki Distiller's Reserve, it is a non-age-statement whisky, meaning that it does not specify the age of the youngest whisky used in the blend.
Hakushu Distiller's Reserve is known for its unique and complex flavor profile, with a balance of fruity and floral notes, and a hint of smokiness. The whisky is made from malted barley, which is peated to give it a smoky flavor. The whisky is aged in a combination of American white oak and Sherry casks, giving it a unique and complex flavor.
It is considered a great introduction to Japanese whisky, as it is a relatively affordable option compared to other aged expressions from the distillery. It is typically enjoyed neat or with a drop of water to open up the flavors. The Hakushu distillery is known for its use of peated barley, which gives its whiskies a distinctive smoky character and it stands out from other distilleries in Japan.
