本坊酒造繼信州蒸餾所(Mars Shinshu Distillery)之後, 於2016年回到自己的發跡之地 - 鹿兒島 建立第二間蒸餾所 - 津貫蒸餾所( Mars Tsunuki Distillery), 更是現今日本最南端的蒸餾所. 溫暖的氣候令Angel's Share 高達6%, 但變相木桶熟成速度大大加快, 從而造出強勁豐厚的威士忌. 這次首發的單一麥芽威士忌是選用了首兩年蒸餾後的新酒, 在波本桶(Bourbon Cask)中陳年, 於2020年入瓶, 全球限量9984瓶.

聞上去濃郁柑橘類水果香氣,緊接香草和新鮮麵包香氣.

入口是豐厚的口感帶有蜂蜜甜味、柑橘類水果, 薑類胡椒類的辣感.

後段綿長柔和的朱古力奶甜味及淡淡薑味香料.
