Mars Shinshu Iwai Tradition Sakura Cask Finished Japanese Whisky 750 ml

Availability: In stock (1)

Located between Japan’s soaring Southern Alps and the towering Central Alps, at just over 2,600 feet, Mars Shinshu is Japan’s highest whisky distillery. The Hombo family have been distilling for more than a century and added whisky to their repertoire in 1949.

For this limited edition from Mars Shinshu, Iwai Tradition is aged an additional 6 months in casks made from the Japanese cherry blossom tree, the highly prized wood known as Sakura. The honey, toffee, and dark cherry notes inherent in Iwai Tradition are beautifully complemented here by the high-toned, floral characteristics imparted by the Sakura. An interesting side note: the Sakura casks (sourced from Ariake Sangyo Co., Japan’s only independent cooperage) are rectangular, reflecting the difficulty of molding this wood to traditional cask shapes
