Mars Iwai 45 Japanese Whisky

A higher proof for your cocktails. This has bright aromas of caramel and maple syrup integrated nicely with wood tones. The palate has a tone of wheat bourbon esque style. Try this in your next Old Fashion. D&M Tasting Notes

This new, higher proof Iwai (pronounced EE-why) was designed for cocktails; however, it’s supple and more than capable as a neat sipper too, with pleasing aromas of honey, ripening pear, barley, exotic woods, and citrus. The palate of honey sweetness, sugar cubes, vanilla, pear, apricot, and spice bows out with honey, breakfast cereal, nougat, and white chocolate. It’s a delicious and unusual whisky from Japan, less aligned with the country’s scotch-like tradition of malts and blends and more similar to bourbon, being made mostly from corn. 91 Points  Jonny McCormick, Whisky Advocate, December 2020   #19 of the Top 20 for 2020

Iwai’s core mixing whisky is kicked up to 45% ABV in this expression for even further versatility in cocktails. 45% ABV
