Whisky Mars Single Malt KOMAGATAKE Japanese Whisky Limited Edition
No longer available
Barrels are stored onsite and in other regions of Japan to help experience less fluctuation in temperature.
This release from the Mars Distillery is still quite young at 3 to 6 years old but the barrels have been hand picked from the highest barrels in the warehouse, generally meaning a warmer maturation. This has resulted in faster maturation and the flavours from the casks have imparted plenty of flavour in this short time.
Matured in ex-Bourbon oak and then new American oak and Sherry Oak. The whisky is lightly peated to 3.5PPM imparting a slight earthiness to the whisky.
Nose: A very clean malt that expresses fresh green apples and pears, citrus and vanilla with some toasted hazelnuts. Really pleasing seeing as it’s so young.
Palate: Oak reveals itself first and marries with spice. Lemon meringue pie, melon balls and vanilla dominate the palate.
Finish: Oak and citrus, orchard fruits and spice.
