Tasting Comment:

Tsunuki Distillery is the second distillery of Mars Whisky and is in the Kagoshima Prefecture in the south of Japan and was built in 2016.  The location of this distillery is also the birthplace of their business Hombo Shuzo Co. more than 100 years ago.

The name tells you this single malt is distilled and matured at Tsunuki, and this is its 2nd release after Tsunuki The First.

Beautiful pure water is used, and the natural environment with day and night-time temperature change has a considerable and unique influence on this whisky.

This single malt was matured in bourbon barrels and is a showcase of peat character. It has shiny amber colour as a sign of age.   The nose shows sweet scents like banana, honey and custard with gorgeous peat smokiness. Clean warm textured mouthfeel is followed by barley and crisp apple, and the finish is long and complex with peat and hints of yellow fruits.

This whisky is non-chill filtered to keep all good flavours.
