Mars Tsunuki Peated Single Malt Japanese Whisky (750 ml)
This 2,100-bottle-release is the second from the newly reopened Mars Tsunuki Distillery. Located in the southern prefecture of Kagoshima from which the Hombo family originally helms, the weather is notably more humid and has greater fluctuation in temperature than the Mars Shinshu distillery in Nagano to the north and offers compelling diversity to the Mars book.
Distilled in 2016 and 2017 and bottled in 2020, this whisky is aged 3–4 years in primarily bourbon and some sherry casks. With peat levels of 20 & 50 parts per million, Tsunuki Peated reads much like a peated Highland Scotch.
