Mars Iwai Tradition Blended Japanese Whisky (750ml)
Mars Iwai Tradition Blended Japanese Whisky (750ml)

A terrific blended whisky from Japan’s most lofty distillery, Shinshu Mars, located 798 metres above sea level. The whisky is produced by Hombo Shuzo Ltd, a Shōchū producer dating back to 1872. Made in limited quantities, Shinshu Mars’ whisky is only distilled during the brutal winters on Kuyshu Island. The spirit itself is a combination of both grain and malt whiskies, aged in a mixture of Sherry, Bourbon and Wine casks.

Tasting notes

Nose

Initially, spiced honey, and gingerbread aromas dominate the nose, followed by a little creamy white rice, some subtle dried fruits and the faintest hint of peat smoke.

Taste

Full bodied, serving up flavours of maple syrup on vanilla biscuits, fresh bread, orange marmalade, cinnamon, soft cloves and a little gentle oak.

Finish

Lighter and brighter than the palate, with a medium length. The finish offers notes of cacao nibs, toffee, slightly drying leather, a touch of smoke and malty sweetness.

Pure pleasure

This is my first Japanese whisky and it was a winner. The water clarity from the region is said to be top notch and I think I can taste the purity of the water.

This has tastes of honey, spice and vanilla with a malty, toffee finish. What’s not to like.
