MARS WHISKY Komagatake Yakushima Aging Single Malt 2021
マルス 駒ヶ岳 屋久島エージング シングルモルト 2021
Available in 700ml (Gift box)
This is the fourth release of this very limited edition of Single malt. Distilled at Mars Whisky’s Shinshu Distillery in Nagano Prefecture in 2015 and then aged on the small island of Yakushima, a UNESCO World Heritage site and rainforest off the coast of Kyushu in the South of Japan.
The majority of this whisky was matured in bourbon and sherry barrels for 3 to 5 years.
The sweet harmony of vanilla and brown sugar with orange and banana tropical fruit on the nose.
The palate is smooth and has a juicy texture and a peaty smokiness with a hint of sea salt. A beautiful balance between juicy fruitiness and smokiness leads to a long finish.
Enjoy an expression of the tropical environment of Yakushima Island.
