Tenjaku Pure Malt Japanese Whisky

One World Many Malts! The wonderful world of whisky brings me to Tenjaku Pure Malt from Japan. In today's blog, I intend to cover the following-
-Brief history behind this whisky
-Tasting notes
-SJ's Rating & Review
-SJ's Pro tip

Reads the product label "Tenjaku Pure Malt is a harmonious marriage of 100% aged malt whiskies aged in bourbon barrels." Its website claims that the water used in every bottle in Tenjaku is filtered through volcanic rock until it meets the standard for dilution. There is no information about the distillery because my guess is they import scotch in barrels and blend it in Japan. Whatever the case, it is quite an enjoyable whisky. Now for the favorite part, my tasting notes! Enjoy.
