Mars Iwai Tradition (750ml / 40%)


750ml / 40% ABV

At 798 meters, Mars' "Shinshu Distillery" is the highest whisky distillery in Japan.  The high altitude and cool climate provides excellent whisky-making conditions.

Mars Iwai Tradition Whisky is named after Kiichiro Iwai, also known as “The Silent Pioneer of Japanese Whisky,” Iwai-san and former mentor of Masataka Taketsuru, the founder of Nikka and Suntory Whisky.

This special Japanese blend is distilled with the waters that pass through granite rock, which is high in natural minerals. Iwai is a blended whisky, made of both single malts and grains.

This mixture is then aged in a combination of ex-Bourbon, ex-Sherry, and ex-Wine casks, creating a perfect trifecta of harmonious flavor.

Tasting Notes:

Soft and rounded, yet full bodied and mellow. The nose gives sweet honey, leading to a complex, peaty full bodied palate which gives sweet peat, orange marmalade, maple, burnt sugar cane, cedar and cigar.
