As the name suggests, this is the first release from the Mars Tsunuki distillery on Kyushu Island. After almost three years in bourbon and sherry barrels, the 2016–2017 single malt was bottled at 59% ABV. This is the first sea-aged Mars distillate. Available from December 2020.
Nose: Sultana, almonds, dried oak, ripe cherries, and a hint of spicy ginger.
Taste: Still quite nutty, not chocolatey peanuts and walnuts. Green grapes, crispy apples, and toffee.
Finish: It dries out subtly with cinnamon and black pepper but leaves a fruity note to the finish.
