Mars 'Tsunuki' Peated Single Malt Japanese Whisky Japan

$249.99 USD

Distiller Notes
This 2100-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.

Tasting Notes
With peat levels of 20 & 50 parts per million, Tsunuki Peated reads much like a peated Highland Scotch. A nose of smoked maple syrup, wet campfire, and dried apricot preps the palate for prominent peat and a note of sandalwood. The drying finish confidently displays browned butter, stemmy herbs, wet gravel, and a hint of menthol.

HOLIDAY SHIPPING DEADLINES: EAST COAST BY FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2ND; WEST COAST & MID-WEST BY FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9TH.
