$299. 00 Bottle
Once again, we have a very small volume of this "Double Cellars" release from the Mars Shinshu distillery. It was initially matured in their Shinshu aging cellar in American White oak and x Sherry casks after which is was sent off to the company’s maturation halls on the small island of Yakushima for further aging in x Bourbon barrels. Located off the south of mainland Japan, the island provides a warmer ageing environment. Finally bottled in 2019, the resulting malt is described as having aromas and flavours of apricot, plum and bitter chocolate, with good acidity as well as mixed spice and a subtle saltiness. 47% Alc./Vol.
