MARS WHISKY Komagatake Single Malt Whisky ‘Edition’ 2021

マルス 駒ヶ岳エディション 2021 シングルモルト

Available in 700ml (Gift box)

Tasting Comment:

Mars Shinshu distillery is located near Mt. Komagatake and is at the top peak of the Kiso mountain range of the Japanese Alps in Nagano Prefecture at around 800m above sea level.

Pure mineral water from the mountain is used for whisky making and the distillery is surrounded by beautiful clean air.

Short hot summers encourage maturation, and long cold winter gives whisky slow and gentle maturation as well as a break.

Selected single malt are blended to create this 2021 edition. Very limited bottling.

Whisky aged mainly in Bourbon and Sherry casks makes up the expression of this whisky. Ripe fruits note such as quince, apricot, and banana, and vanilla on the nose.

The palate shows the sweetness of honey, melon, and ripe persimmon fruits, also the hazelnut character from Sherry cask. Smooth and elegant finish.

ALC/VOL: 48%
