MARS Kasei 40%
Blended Whisky, Japan / Honshu - Nagano, 70cl, Ref: 55070
Deriving from the blending of different barrels, Kasei, which means Mars in Japanese, is a whisky of malt and grain imbued with softness and roundness. A true ambassador of Japanese style whiskies, Kasei embodies the poetry of Japan,where notes of white flowers fuse with aromas of ripe fruit. It leaves in its wake a light touch of smoke that gives this whisky a particular character.
Intense and rich.

- The brand
The brandLocated in Japan, the Mars distillery has a rather unusual, turbulent history. Its founder is none other than Kiichiro Iwai, the man who instigated the departure for Scotland of the renowned Masataka Taketsuru and more importantly the owner of a spirit company that produces shochu (Japanese eau de vie). The Shinshu Mars distillery is situated in an exceptional location that affords a truly unique whisky. Located at an altitude of 800 metres, in a region that has a particularly harsh climate, the distillery benefits from pure spring water filtered over centuries by the mountains. Another remarkable feature of this distillery is that it only produces whisky during the winter months. The fall in demand during the eighties forced the distillery to close down in 1992, but it was reopened in 2011. It was only natural then that the first whisky to be made in the new stills be called ‘The Revival 2011’.

Très surpris par ce whisky blended malt japonais, vendu a un prix « accessible » il a eu palette de saveur digne des whiskies beaucoup plus cher

Nice blend, but very light. Needs a lot of time to breath. Aromas are too subtle. More volume would give them a little push. Compared with Nikka days or Suntory Toki, the others are directly present in the nose. The Kasei is a little bit shy.
