Hakushu Reserve Bottling Note

From the Hakushu distillery in the foothills of Mount Kaikomagatake comes their Distiller's Reserve single malt whisky, a no-age-statement expression, that captures the smoky, herbaceous characteristics of their whiskies. Both lightly-peated and heavily-peated malts were used for this complex and deeply enjoyable whisky. One of two Spring 2014 release from Suntory.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: The herbs are very up front with this one. Peppermint, pine and pleasant grassy notes. Cucumber and melon round out the nose.

Palate: All the notes on the nose swim effortlessly through the palate, the mint developing sweeter notes as it goes on. Citrus zest also pops in to say hello.

Finish: A waft of smoke appears during the long finish.

Overall: This shall make a fantastic Highball. Oh yes it shall.

Hakushu Single Malt Whisky - Distiller’s Reserve Reviews


As if on a rainy day we were walking around on a carpet of moss in a dense pine forest, with ferns and heather with a running stream in the background where we suddenly found a fruit stall with yellow peaches, pears and honeydew melon.

A light peat combined with moist forest floor, bamboo, grass, but more warm than bitter and a pinch of anise and tarragon.

A long aftertaste, where the peat comes out more with intense notes of green tea.

Very tasty, you get hungry to make this forest walk again after every sip.

Simply superb

Loved it. We're on our 2nd bottle, complete fan.

An 8 yo Glenfiddich in a nice bottle.

Yep Apple, floral notes and thin. Made in a forest in Japan and expensive, I have tried to like it, but lacks age, quality and value. Nice label and box.

A must buy for your self or others if you wish them an amazing drink

Although the bottle was not for myself I had chance to try it as it was opened it's pleasantly stronger and deeper in taste and mouthfeel compared to the suntory Toki more of an emphasis on barrel spice but still maintaining the floral notes. Beautiful bottle and I will be getting myself a bottle when it is back in stock

There is delicate and there is delicate.

Nose: Light summer harvest...sweet breakfast fruit.

Palate: Spice bombing…eye watering.

After: Short but repeating minty.

Good option - not too conplex gd

Think I’m turning Japanese. Love this whisky. Closer to a scottish highland - no peat or smoke - but dispute its age tastes sophisticated enough to take to our whisky club as a wild card. Will buy again. Toffee and childhood banana sweet flavour.

Delicately Smoky Banana Goodness

Got a bottle for under 50USD in Osaka. I really love the delicate flavors in this one, with just enough complexity on par with the Sepeysides I've had. Really good dram for an evening night cap, after a meal or for afternoon conversations with friends.

Nose - opens with a strong fresh banana, vanilla-caramel sweetness, pine, very light smoke, almonds
Palate - Opens with mild sandalwood and pine, then spicy pepper attacks the mouth which slowly fades into sweet banana, fresh berries and yuzu rind, greenery and smoke.
Finish - Pleasant fruit and mild greens with mild smoke and 70% dark chocolate

Very smooth and easy drink!
