Suntory Hakushu Heavily Peated

Smoky flavor from the peated malt is the essence that gives Hakushu its taste. In this single malt, the malted barley has been given an extra dose of peat smoke while drying before it’s fermented in wooden wash backs and distilled in direct fire still pots. The whisky is then stored in American white oak bourbon casks to age.
