A pleasing array of spice, nuttiness, vanilla, and citrus fruits, this First Single Malt release from new Mars Tsunuki Distillery is limited to 1,122 bottles. Aged for three years and finished in Bourbon casks, this whisky is very rich and would make a suitable dessert drink.
Mars Tsunuki was founded as an expansion to Mars Shinshu Distillery. Tsunuki is closer to Mars' original Hombo Shuzo, which boasts access to pristine water. Tsunuki's climate also has more humidity and temperature fluctuations being at sea level, giving way to more opportunities to experiment with terroir in their distillation efforts.
