Mars Shinshu 2014 Komagatake Heavily Peated Asian Exclusive Cask 1855

Mars Shinshu, my favourite Japanese distillery by far, the most impressive bottles are not the long aged ones before its revival in 2011, but the young, new whisky around 2 - 4 years.This bottle of "Komagatake Heavily Peated" was matured in American White Oak, as known as Ex-Bourbon Cask。Not as punchy as Islay Scotch on nose, first comes peaty, followed by chrysanthemum tea, oak, honey and sea salt;Creamy and oily in palate, then comes with explosive sweetness;Medium to long finish,like floral tea, wood, smoky and hints of bitter。


Mar Shinshu distillery was once mothballed (Production paused) for 19 years until its revival in 2011,if you want to know more about the distillery,we recommand you Whisky Rising, a book about Japnese distillery by Stefan Van Eycken, which is avaliable at The Rare Malt.
