For today’s pour, I went back to the classic, the basics. But wait, its Japanese? Japanese make peated whisky? Is it really Japanese? Yes, it is! There’s a few Japanese whiskies that I would say are good value for money and not over hyped or bloated, the Hakushu is one of them. With peat levels of only 25 ppm, I would consider it lightly peated and a great introduction to Japanese peat. Not only does it taste great neat, its amazing as a highball with a slice of Orange in the summer.
