描述

The Mars distillery is very well regarded in Japan despite the low price point. The pot stills used to make this whisky were constructed in the ’50s. The fat stills produce a very weighty and complex spirit that delivers a rich texture and complex aromas. Hombo Shuzo, the owners of the distillery, are one of Japan’s top wine producers and therefore have access to great number of cask types. Most whisky is aged in sherry and bourbon, but the distillery is also experimenting with wine casks as well. Iwai has a richness and texture that many of the other entry-level Japanese whiskies do not achieve. This unusual whisky is a blend of 65% lightly peated malt, 10% rye grain, and 25% corn whisky. They are aged in ex-bourbon, sherry, wine, virgin French oak, and new American. The whiskies in the blend are aged between 3-20 years of age. The Iwai Tradition is very much a drinker’s whisky and offers a lot of pleasure for your dollar. It may not have the cache that the Suntory whiskies have, but it’s got every bit as much quality and complexity. This is malt driven spirit is truly a reflection of contemporary Japanese whisky. Incredibly balanced, soft and layered. A blending of sherry, bourbon and wine casks with hints delicate hints of peat make for a harmonious whisky that would make Iwai-san proud.
TASTING NOTES: Ripe Cherry, honey toffee with a beautiful ginger spice.
日本威士忌這些年身價水漲船高,除了卓絕品質、獨特風味的因素外,鮮明地酒廠特色更是讓消費者著迷之處。
山崎的豐富複雜、余市的泥煤、白州的森林系、宮城峽的隱市獨立、甚至是輕井澤的價不可攀。在這波日威榮光中,信州Mars蒸餾廠從未缺席但卻因為低度發展與產量有限,蒙上一層神秘色彩。
信州古稱信濃國,也就是現在的長野縣,地處本州中部,也就是中央高地上,是日本八個內陸縣份之一。這裏有許多海拔超過兩千公尺的高山,因此長野也有「日本屋脊」之稱,而信州Mars蒸餾廠也就成為全日本海拔最高(798m)的蒸餾廠。

信州Mars蒸餾廠其實隸屬來自鹿兒島的本坊酒造集團,該集團由本坊家族七兄弟於1872年成立至今,歷時140年,已經成為日本極為重要的釀酒集團。而信州Mars蒸餾廠在日本威士忌的發展史上也是一座寶庫,是僅次於三得利、Nikka之外最關鍵的日威廠。
