Tasting Comment:

This is Mars Komagatake Single Malt ‘Wine Cask Finish’ was produced in collaboration with Voyager Estate from the famous Margaret River region located in Western Australia.

Only 924 bottles have been produced.  This is the 2nd collaboration and this special whisky is sold only in Australia and Japan.

This Single Malt was distilled at Mars Shinshu Distillery in 2016 in Nagano Prefecture and matured in a bourbon barrel for more than 3 years.

It was then aged for another 15 months in French Troncais oak.

This oak cask was previously used to age Voyager Estate’s flagship red wine, their ‘MJW’ Cabernet Sauvignon, and was sent to Japan in early 2020 once the wine came out of the cask.

This special whisky shows the harmony between the world of whisky and wine.

The attractive pale red rose colour is evidenced from red wine cask, fruity notes on the aroma with grapes, berry, pomegranate.

Elegant smooth mouthfeel with grape fruit character.    The finish is long, viscous umami, and well balanced with sweetness.

ALC/VOL: 48%
