The latest release from Mars Whisky is upon us, Single Malt Komagatake Yakushima Aging. As the name indicates it’s aged on the small island of Yakushima, a UNESCO World Heritage site and rainforest off the coast of Kyushu. Even though it’s only aged 3 years the tasting notes list a strong woody aroma and sweet cinnamon flavor. It’s 59% abv and 700ml.
This one is being released via a lottery system, with the drawing to take place on December 25. Winners can purchase one of 1140 bottles for 9720 yen. Sign up for the lottery via the product page. Good luck!
