Our Take

Compared to Tsunuki the First, it has an overwhelmingly gorgeous and sweet aroma. The sweetness of the fruit and the woody-sweet taste derived from bourbon barrels combine to create a pleasant aftertaste.

This is one of the bottles that makes me feel that the quality of Tsunuki distillery’s raw materials is improving. Among the whiskeys released by craft distilleries in recent years, I felt that this is a whiskey with a pretty good cosmetic value.

This is a whisky that I would like you to try, as it is relatively limited and easy to get hold of.
