Quick note: Japanese Whisky doesn't really come at this price point. But don't be fooled into thinking something is wrong here. The Mars distillery is very well regarded in Japan despite the low price point some of it's products are available at. This one is a blended whisky, produced in the traditional pot stills at Shinshu Mars in the "Iwai Tradition" (more on that below). Despite the lower ABV, a balanced body and weight, give this whisky a deep, rich texture and graceful complexity.
From the Producer: A pot still is a symbol of whisky making process. We cannot talk about the history of Mars Whisky without talking about the pot still. It is Mr Kiichiro Iwai that built the whisky brand of Hombo Brewing (Hombo Shuzo) as well as provided the whisky production instructions there. Mr Iwai is indeed a father of Mars whisky.
Iwai Tradition is a blended whisky whose base is an unblended whisky distilled in this pot still which is then blended with several unblended whisky on the perfect balance.
Shinshu Factory where Iwai Whisky is produced is located at an altitude of 798 km of the Komagatake Mountains, Central Alps of Japan. This terrain is an ideal place to produce whisky, where the air is pure, misty and cool, and the place is rich in good water recourses which are coming from 120 m under the granite ground.
A recent release of new bottlings of Hombo Shuzo's (Mars Whiskey) Iwai Japanese whiskey. The Iwai is a malt and grain blend whiskey with elements of toasted nuts, soft honey, caramel, and sweet spice. Easy drinking and a perfect introduction to Japanese whiskies.
