It is at the Shinshu distillery located in northern Japan that Mars 2014 Komagatake Shinshu Aging French Connections was distilled and aged in a first fill cask that contained bourbon.
A single cask with a concentrated aroma profile, its aromatic palette expresses great complexity and shows maturity despite its young age. Its syrupy character, reminiscent of a very good Loupiac, is found with a rather exotic (pineapple), vanilla, herbaceous (haystack) and spicy (nutmeg) nose.
On the palate the unctuous texture reveals a malty and finely liquorice attack with a farandole of spicy notes (nutmeg, cumin) which are accompanied by fruity (pear, apple) and honeyed aromas that persist in a long and generous finish.
