Shinshu Mars Distillery

Biker Journey 3rd Edition

This is the Mar’s Biker Journey. The nose is what I would call traditional scotch blended nose but I’m no expert on these and a real novice. I get bananas on the nose. Light wood on the flavor, relatively thin and light on the palate. It coats but nothing dominates or punches. It’s a smooth easy drinker. — a year ago

A friend gave it to me - looks like most places are starting to carry it. Lincoln Fine Wines, Wally’s, K&L... where do you go?

"Komagatake" Aged 24 Years Single Malt Bourbon Barrel Japanese Whisky

Gorgeous tawny color. Aromas of nail varnish, cherry liquor, vanilla bean, coconut, hazelnut, brandy, quince, and dried fig. Mouthfeel is voluptuous. Flavors echo the nose plus additional smoky notes, cherry pie, and subtle ginger, coriander, and licorice spices. Long, unctuous finish. Wonderful 24 year expression from Mars! — 6 years ago
