Shinsu Mars Komagatake 27 yr old Single Malt 46%

Hombo Shuzo's Shinshu Distillery selected 4 casks

  • American White Oak #382 from 1986
  • Sherry #327 from 1986
  • Sherry #570 from 1988
  • Sherry #1068 from 1990

& blended 1200 bottles. These were then sold via lottery to their clients around the world, one of them being a whisky supplier of ours who secured just 4 bottles for Australia and we got 1 of those 4. 

So yes, rare is a word often thrown about in reference to Japanese whisky but in this case it is entirely justified. A very collectible whisky and if you are more interested in drinking than collecting we hear it is a great combo of peat and sherry.

A superb Komagatake release for the first part of 2018. The four casks draw an exquisite essence of fruity flavours, some spice and sweetness. To round this off it has a great amount of peat. Kenji Taniguichi has selected amazing casks and blended these to perfection. I was glad to try this at Mars Distillery with Koki-San (Distillery Manager). I appreciated his couple of hours to walk me around Shinshu Distillery and explain to me the many intricacies and exciting facts about Shinshu. -
