Mars Shinshu 'Komagatake' Shinanotanpopo - Nature of Shinshu Japanese Single Malt Whisky

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.
