Shinshu Mars Distillery Iwai Tradition Sherry Cask Finish Blended Japanese Whisky (750ml)
Originally aged for between 2–5 years in ex-bourbon, sherry, and American oak casks, this limited release from Mars Shinshu in Nagano was created from a mashbill of 70% malted barley and 30% corn and finished for just over eleven months in PX (sweet) sherry casks. Anticipate aromas and flavours of clove and nougat, complemented by aromas of dry sherry and sweeter notes of maple syrup. A mere 540 bottles were released on the US market, so expect Australia to get much, much less. 40% Alc./Vol.
