With its Antipodes series, Mars Whisky unveils three versions aged in three different locations, of its emblematic single malt called Komagatake.
This exclusive single cask was aged in the cellars of the Tsunuki distillery located on the island of Kyushu where the hot and humid climate influences the maturation of the whisky. With a phenol content of 20 ppm, it expresses a fresh, floral profile, marked by a rather refined smoky peat.
On the nose, the delicacy of the smoked peat takes over the floral notes of honeysuckle and carnation surrounded by fruity and vanilla touches. The tasting is marked by a silky texture in which vegetal, cereal notes and some spicy and fruity touches are revealed. The long and delicate finish sees the peat return to make its reverence and leave the aromatic palette accompanied by greedy notes of pineapple, cut hay and tarragon.
This single cask is the bottling of a single cask in which the Komagatake single malt distilled in 2016 in the Shinshu distillery located in the heart of the Japanese Alps has matured. Transferred to the cellars of Tsunuki, the second distillery of the House of Hombo Shuzo, the cask n°5183 has waited for 5 years before being bottled without reduction of the alcoholic degree.
Product limited to 1 bottles per order.
