Distillery: Shinshu Mars
Size: 700 ml
A single malt whisky matured in oak barrels and then finished in an IPA Cask (sourced from Minami Shinshu Brewery located right next to the Mars Shinshu Distillery in Nagano, Japan). The IPA was a medium-dark beer using plenty of hops thereby imparting a light and refreshing citrus nose and a fruity sweetness reminiscent of grapefruits and orange with a crisp IPA-like bitter chocolate finish to the whisky.
