Mars Maltage Cosmo Bottling Note

Mars Maltage Cosmo is a blended malt featuring whisky from the little-known Japanese distillery Shinshu, as well as whiskies from undisclosed Scottish distilleries. An intriguing expression...

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Soft vanilla notes up front, joined by sweet red fruit (think cherry and sugary raspberry).

Palate: Orange oil and chocolate, fresh barley and toasty oak.

Finish: Fresh plum and white grape. Cereals and chocolate biscuits.

Reviews for Mars Maltage Cosmo
Needs to do better for its price.
Deep yellow in colour, prominant nose of cherries, marzipan maybe toffee apple.
Thick, oily on the palette in a pleasant way. Spicy and takes a few drops of water without firing up or destroying the flavour. However there isn't much complexity or refinement in flavour mostly woody, caramel and vanilla, and for me isn't a great example of Japanese whisky like a 12yo hibiki or yamazaki. I received this as part of the Japanese advent calendar so probably taking a differing view than if I'd paid near £60 at which I would be upset. Much better whisky's can be had for this price for my pallette but glad to have tried it.

Disappointing for a whisky of this price. I don't understand the positive reviews. I find this to be very harsh with a sharp edge and high alcohol, with very little depth of flavour.

It has neither a sweet, nor a smoky, nor a fruity character. Really disappointing.

Scotch in sheep's clothing
Nothing bad to say about this whisky but you're basically paying for a scotch whisky that has been flown to Japan and back again. If you like this, I'd suggest trying a Balvenie.

It is an excellent whisky.
I could rave about it. I've been to Japan six times. On returning from Haneda airport. Nov 2019 the duty free recommended MARS Maltage Cosmo.

Like Japanese Bell's but 50 quid.
I had high hopes for this, it being in the book '101 whiskys to try before you die.'
Admitedly, the chap writing the book openly said he hadn't tried it, and was putting it in purely on the strength of what he'd read/heard about it, but despite this I thought I would take the plunge. Tasted boring, forgettable, faintly desperate and with a tinge of something that might once have been character but had been buried by a myriad of bland layers. Best described as like a Weds night at Flares with your Uncle. Avoid, or be mildly regretful and slightly sadder for the experience.

Vanilla and fruit on the nose, but sadly underwhelming on the palate.

Very disappointing
Very disappointing. This was my first taste of a Japanese whisky and was expecting some far better. It's rough and burns on the way down! I'd rate well known high street supermarkets own brand blended scotch above this!

I had high hopes as I love other Japanese whiskies, but I was bay disappointed.

It's very harsh, and burns the throat and has little in the way of subtle flavours. Would be ok if it was £20 cheaper.

Don’t bother
Rubbish. Tastes like a cheap blend. How can this be called Japanese?
