The third release in the Nature of Shinshu range from Mars Shinshu is the Shinanotanpopo single malt Japanese whisky, which was made by combining a well-aged whisky from their warehouses with a much younger whisky. "Shinanotanpopo", for those curious, means "dandelion flower".
Nose: Summer berry tart with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the site.
Palate: Floral malt starts to take control on the palate, though sweetness of blueberries and caramel continues to hold its ground.
Finish: A touch of honeysuckle and mint on the finish.
