With this new limited edition, Mars Whisky unveils an uncompromising version of its emblematic single malt named Komagatake after a peak located not far from the distillery.
Distilled and aged in the Shinshu cellar in the heart of the Japanese Alps at an altitude of 800 meters, this collector whisky reveals a refined, fruity and fresh profile. Its rather complex nose reveals notes of vanilla, exotic fruits and aromatic plants. On the palate, vanilla persists while being joined by citrus flavors of lemon and grapefruit and gourmet notes of coconut pie. A few honeyed notes make their appearance in a long and invigorating finish that will leave fruity notes of yellow melon, banana and fresh walnut in the aftertaste.
This edition is the exclusive bottling of a carefully selected first fill ex-Bourbon cask that matured the Komgatake single malt distilled in 2016.
Product limited to 1 bottles per order.
