Mars Komagatake 2020 Single Malt Whisky

Limited Edition. Rich aromas of peanut, nougat, baked banana bread, earth and barrel spice. The palate has a rich texture of white chocolate and pecans with a nice citrus note to cut the sweetness. D&M Tasting Notes

The label on the 2020 edition of the Komagatake Limited Series celebrates recent and substantial refurbishments made to Mars Shinshu, tucked in the Nagano Alps and opened nearly 40 years ago. This single malt whisky was aged over 3 years in sherry casks and a combination of new American oak casks and ex-bourbon barrels. The distiller’s tasting notes include prune, honey, and vanilla on the nose, with sweet orange on the palate underscored by cocoa powder; a delicious dram to mark the next leg of the Mars Shinshu whisky-making journey. Bottled at its cask strength of 50% ABV and non-chill filtered.

Notes of Japanese plum on the palate coupled with floral and citrus aromas. The mouthfeel is light and dry at first then transitions to a slightly sweet finish. A few drops of water reveals a subtle peatiness

Currently, Mars has two distilleries and an additional aging site. Mars Shinshu, the main distillery, is tucked away at 2,625 ft in the Nagano Alps, making it Japan’s highest whiskey distillery. Nagano’s heavy snowfall and temperate climate provide an abundance of soft and delicate glacier water for use in this dynamic range of both blended and single malt expressions. Importer Notes
