Tsunuki Single Malt Japanese Whisky 2023 Edition
Delight in the latest release from Tsunuki Distillery: the 2023 edition of their limited-edition single malt Japanese whisky! With its 100% malted barley and lightly peated character (average 5–6 ppm), this 3 year old whisky was aged in ex-bourbon and ex-sherry barrels. On the nose, you'll find toasted sweet grain with hints of orchard fruit and woody smoke. Enjoy mouth-watering flavors of bergamot orange marmalade and grilled lemons with a smoldering campfire smoke, all at 50% ABV! Delight your senses with this unique, non-chill filtered whisky.
The Tsunuki Distillery is in the south of Japan where the climate leans hot and humid, especially compared to that of Mars’s Komagatake Distillery high in the Japanese Alps. The whisky of Tsunuki is full of rich fruit and bass notes, making perfect pairings for a slightly higher level of peat. This year’s release of single malt, which year over year best represents the distillery’s house style, is particularly fruity in multiple dimensions, displaying everything from citrus oil to stewed fruit, with a smokiness that will appeal to fans of peated Highland Scotches.
