Taketsuru/Hakushu peaty or not?
I am new to whisky and started from Japanese whisky.
Now I want to get a touch onto Scotch whisky especially those from the Islay.
I had tried Taketsuru 17yo and Hakushu 12yo & 18yo, I like them all.
I had read reviews saying these are lightly peated and contain little peaty and smoky aroma, but I couldn't really tell when I tasted those whiskies.
So how are the peat level of these comparing to Islay's and what would you suggest for me?
