Single Malt Whisky, Japan / Kyushu – Kagoshima
The Tsunuki distillery was founded in 2016 and is located on the island of Kyushu in the very south of Japan. It is equipped with a 5,800 litre wash still and a 3,300 litre spirit still. This version is peated to 50 ppm and accordingly the nose opens with a particularly peaty and smoky character. The palate is more accommodating, with peat and smoke allowing a full expression of fruity, vanilla, chocolate and floral notes that highlight the quality of the sherry cask maturation.
