Rare by nature, Mars Whisky was founded in 1985 but spent the best part of a decade silent. Nowadays, Mars has two distilleries - Shinshu and Tsunki. This limited edition dram comes from the lofty Shinshu Mars Distillery, the highest of all Japanese distilleries at 800m above sea level. This annual sought after release matured in a mix of Sherry and American white oak casks with peated and unpeated malts. Arguably the best release yet from the mountain top distillery.
Shinshu Mars is perfectly located for the production of whisky, with the cool climate mirroring that found in Scotland and Ireland. The altitude of the distillery makes for a lower pressure when distilling, said to produce a lighter final product. Finally, the Kuyshu Island is blessed with high quality water, filtered by granite, that Mars use in the distillation and dilution process.

Very luscious with notes of chewy toffee, vanilla, creamy honey and sweet cereal grains. With time some more subtle fruity notes of plum jam and red apple emerge.
A textural delight, beautifully mouth-coating. Like a comforting dessert with warm apple pie, raspberry compote and salted caramel sauce. A hint of salinity and wisp of smoke for seasoning.
A long and gentle finish with fresh red berries continuing alongside milk chocolate, creme brulee and almond butter.
