Shinshu Mars Distillery Maltage "Cosmo" Blended Malt Japanese Whisky (700ml)

$180.00 Bottle
  • ABV 43%

High up in Miyata village on Kuyshu Island is the Shinshu distillery (aka "Mars"), founded in 1985 by Hombo Shuzo Ltd, a producer of shochu since 1872. Shinshu’s whisky is distilled only during the island's harsh winters. In operation from 1985-1992 and then 2011 to present, this is actually Shuzo's third domestic distillery. The previous have been the Yamanashi Distillery (1960-1969) and the Mars Kagoshima Distillery (1978-1984).

‘Cosmo’ (which refers to a mountain near the distillery), is a new label for this producer. A blended malt, bottled at 43%, composed of the distillery's own spirit as well as Scotch malt whisky imported in bulk.

Tasting note: Amber gold colour. Aromas of walnut slice, spicy stewed pear and later, prunes. Light to medium bodied with attractive malt flavours and a delicate sweet smoke overlay. Mildly oily and spicy to finish. Good freshness throughout. Ends medium long. 43% Alc./Vol.
