Each year since the rebirth of the Shinshu distillery in 2011, Mars Whisky has unveiled a new version of its Komagatake single malt.
Each edition aims to present the evolution of its iconic single malt distilled, aged and bottled at Shinshu located in the heart of the Japanese Alps. For this 2022 edition the blend is mainly composed of bourbon casks complemented by sherry and port casks giving an elegant, rich and smooth profile.
On the nose, fruity notes of apricot and banana are combined with greedy notes of custard. On the palate, the silky texture brings out the vinous notes inherited from the sherry casks to which are added notes of walnut and hazelnut and a hint of acacia honey. The clean and perfectly balanced finish leaves a rich and slightly tannic sensation with ripe fruits.
