駒ケ岳 Single Sherry Cask
自 2011 年復產以來的 8 個年頭，信州蒸餾所推出的 Sherry 單桶寥寥無幾，可能是它的酒體跟 Sherry Cask 較難配合，店主試過以往數款都不夠 American White Oak 熟成的駒ケ岳突出。而今年廠方又開始在蝴蝶系列 (Le Papillon) 和今次的主角：Asian Exclusive 系列上推出 Sherry 單桶，店主試過 2 款後都對 Sherry Cask 熟成的駒ケ岳改觀。
Mars Shinshu has been "revived" for 8 long years, while Sherry Cask whisky from them is still rare to see, maybe their whisky did not work so well with sherry cask at the past. We have tried some and American White Oak is still the best for Komagatake. In 2019, Mars starts launching more Single Sherry Cask in "Le Papillon" and "Asian Exclusive" series, and it finally gets to the right taste! This Cask #5140 impressed us so much that we would love to share with you.
On nosing, a lot of Mars Shinshu type chrysanthemum tea smell, and of course a big sherry bomb with maple syrup, creme brulee-like sweetness and creaminess, raisins, sawdust. Full of sweetness at the moment putting in mouth, turns to caramel, a bit sulphury, and very full body, excellent on palate. Caramel taste lasts to the end, and changing slowly to chrysanthemum tea and wood.
