This new 2018 Komagatake Tsunuki Aging single malt from Mars Whisky was distilled at the Shinshu distillery located in the heart of the Japanese Alps and nestled at an altitude of 800 meters. The casks were then transferred for aging to Tsunuki at the southern tip of the country where Mars Whisky has installed one of its warehouses.
Beyond this geographical particularity, this whisky is a blend of 3 types of casks: ex-bourbon, ex-sherry casks and casks that have contained umeshu, a Japanese liqueur made from ume, the Japanese plum.
This expression is a blend of unpeated and highly peated single malts giving a nose with aromas of cherry and green tea, joined in the mouth by greedy notes of caramel, brown sugar and vanilla. It is in the finish that the aromatic bouquet will reveal its peaty side with slightly smoky notes
