MARS WHISKY Komagatake ‘Limited Edition’ Single Malt Whisky 2018
マルス 駒ヶ岳リミテッドエディション シングルモルト 2018
Available in 700ml (Gift box)
Mars’ first distillery is located high in 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 with 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 2018 edition. Very limited botting. Only bourbon barrel and American white oak cask are used. Ripe plum and floral notes on the nose with a delicate smokiness from the malt. The palate is smooth and complex with gentle dryness, and fine balance between citrus fruitiness and vanilla and fruit sweetness. Long and gentle finish. Whisky maker’s suggestion is to serve with little amount of water to enjoy the complex flavour.
