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.

The distillery

The distillery Shinshu Mars

Nestled at an altitude of 800 meters in the heart of the Japanese Alps near Nagano, Shinshu was founded in 1985 by Hombo Shuzo, a wine and shochu producer based on the island of Kuyshu.


Shinshu is the highest distillery in Japan and enjoys a cool climate in summer and snowy winters where temperatures are often negative. Built at the foot of Mount Komagatake, from which its single malt takes its name, the distillery is surrounded by pure water springs which it uses for the production of its whiskies.
