Hakushu malt that imparts classic Hakushu notes of stewed green apples.
Nose: Peaches, bananas, and pineapple followed by vanilla and gentle oak.
Palate: Immediate spiciness, nuts, fresh-baked scones, and stewed green apples.
Finish: Nicely warming and mouth coating with a medium length; nuts and custard over stewed green apples.
