Mars Kasei Bottling Note

Alas, this whisky isn't really from the planet Mars, but from the Mars Shinshu distillery, which is just as exciting! It is Japan's highest whisky distillery at just under 800 metres, so it's nearly made it to space. 'Kasei' is the Japanese word for Mars, and the whisky is made from a blend of both malt and grain whiskies, married from a variety of barrels.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: White flowers and ripe white stone fruit, with just a whisper of smoke.

Palate: Fresh green apple intertwined with light smoky notes, a drizzle of fragrant honey alongside waffles with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream.

Finish: Vanilla and citrus on the finish, think lemon tart.

Mars Kasei Reviews

Drinkable but not a lot of depth

Nose: Floral with a slight vanilla note
Palate: Fruity, light but without a lot of depth or anything that stands out
Finish: Short and again, nothing that really stands out but a tad peppery spice on the tail

Is it possible to be TOO 'balanced'?

Nose - lightly floral and smokey. Not much distinct.
Palate - light. Fruity tones, light smokey, I can see honey and vanilla.
Finish - Vanilla. Not getting much citrus. Kinda short.

It's perfectly drinkable - smooth, light, no faults. But it feels like they blended any sort of distinctive character out of the dram.

Nice with a sharp back end

I like this Whisky, it's got a nice clean taste but with a bite at the back end.
It mixes well and has a medium colour. I would be happy to buy this again.
