Wine EnthusiastFans of smoky Islay Scotches will enjoy this smoky single malt that's made at Suntory's Hakashu Distillery, which is "surrounded by forest at the foot of the Southern Japan Alps." Despite the delicate aromas of tropical fruit and light peat, the smoke note is considerably amplified on the palate, especially on the resonant finish, where it pushes those dainty fruit tones completely off the map.
