Tasting Notes

Distilled in 1986, only one year after the family moved the distillery to Nagano, on pot stills designed on designs by the father of Japanese Whisky Masataka Taketsuru preserved from the 1920s, this extraordinary spirit was aged for 30 years in medium charred new American Oak casks before being bottled in 2016 at a natural cask strength of 61% ABV. With only 100 bottles released for the US this is the rarest stateside release to date by far for this brand and we only have precious few bottles to share. The tremendous depth of this whiskey are qualities that can come not only from the long aging but the unique character of the Mars cellars at the foot of the Japanese Alps in Nagano. A real treasure.
