Yamazaki Distiller's Reserve

SINGLE MALT - 43 % / 70 cl

Born in the Suntory historical distillery, the first in Japan, Yamazaki Distiller's Reserve is the new single malt to integrate the permanent whisky range of the brand. Fruity flavors, big part of the Yamazaki distillery signature including strawberry, cherry and white peach, are complemented by japanese typical spicy notes including cinnamon, incense and ginger.
 
Whisky very sweet and easy to drink, Yamazaki Distiller's Reserve is ideal for amateurs and very intriguing for fans of japanese whisky. It can be tasted straight or "on the rocks" with ice, but you can just as well serve a "highball" lying with sparkling water for a typical japanese experience of tasting.
 
Assuming that "age alone is not the only quality of a whisky", Suntory is challenging convention by proposing this new single malt. Indeed, Yamazaki Distiller 's Reserve is a whisky in hand, because it's a blended work among older whiskies named "veterans" and whiskies rather young but with amazing and attractive features, the team blenders called them "young talent" .
 
Three main elements enter into the composition of this single malt : a young talent and two veterans. Suntory selected as his young talent, a young whisky matured in French oak barrels of wine from Bordeaux with exceptional aromatic qualities for his young age. To bring complexity and body while respecting the signature of Yamazaki, blenders have selected whiskies aged over 20 years in sherry casks. Finally, to harmonize this blend, Suntory opted for a whisky aged in japanes oak barrels, the precious mizunara, which brings typically japanese spicy notes.

Mars Maltage Cosmo

BLENDED MALT - 43 % / 70 cl

(2 reviews)

Brand new Shinshu distillery's release, Mars Maltage "Cosmo" is integrating the permanent range of Mars Whisky. This blended malt whisky expresses a rich and intensely greedy aromatic profile, which will bring you into a charming Japanese and Scottish taste universe, carefully built around the two producing countries craftmanship. The result is a tasty blend of sweet flavors such as honey, caramel and riped fruits, subtly highlighted by some woody and smoky hints.

 

Facing a growing demand, Mars Whisky adopted a new strategy by creating a new permanent whisky made from their own malt production and the use of imported Scottish single malts. Therefore Mars Maltage "Cosmo" is a blend of single malts distilled and aged in Shinshu founded in 1985 at 798 meters above sea level in the heart of the Japanese Alps, with single malts distilled and aged in Scotland. His name "Cosmo" refers to one of the peaks of the mountain range surrounding the distillery.
 
Mars Maltage "Cosmo" has no age statement because Shinshu single malts used are relatively young, the distillery started distilling again in 2011, and old Scottish whiskies are very rare, thus Chief Blender Takehira Koteru focused on the specific taste characteristics of each single malts selected.
 
Bottled at 43% ABV, it is diluted with water 100% Japanese coming from sources close to the distillery from which water has been filtered through the granite rock for years, ensuring excellent quality and exceptional purity and honoring Japanese traditional soil.

Hakushu Distiller's Reserve

SINGLE MALT - 43 % / 70 cl

(2 reviews)

Suntory extended its permanent range of single malts with the brand new Hakushu Distiller's Reserve. Born of an unusual blend of aged whiskies and young whiskies but with surprising character, this whisky is the result of a 90 year old know-how, transmitted to the brand blenders.
 
Complex and sweet, Hakushu Distiller's Reserve is very attractive with its rich floral and fruity aromas ranging from citrus, mint and melon notes to lightly woody and smoky flavours. Very nice and refreshing, you can taste it dry or "on the rocks", but also the japanese typical way "highball" lying with sparkling water and decorated with a sprig of fresh mint .
 
For Suntory "age doesn't necessarily make the quality of a whisky", and inspired by this philosophy transmitted by the Torii family and its three generations of master blenders, the Hakushu Distiller's Reserve is a very strong connection between original and aged whiskies named "veterans" and younger but atypical and complex whiskies despite their age, called "young talents".
 
For this new single malt, the blenders team selected as "young talent" a Hakushu Lightly Peated whisky making roundness and freshness. The other two main ingredients are two "veterans", a Heavily Peated aged a dozen years for the typical smoky notes of the distillery signature, and a 18 year old "veteran" aged in american white oak which will give to the Hakushu Reserve Distiller's maturity and complexity.
