When the word is out that this highest-lying distillery in Japan plans to release yet another masterpiece, Whisky lovers start camping in front of their local liquor stores (or, arguably more comfortable, their online counterparts). Situated in Nagano at an elevation of over 2,600 feet, the Mars Shinshu Distillery is in an ideal place for Whisky production and the results speak for themselves.

This 2021 edition is a Single Malt Whisky was distilled and matured in Nagano in a combination of ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry American oak sitting in the shadow of Mt. Komagatake—the largest peak in the Kiso Mountain Range. Coming from such a breath-taking location, the Whisky inside should be equally impressive. And it really is! Gentle fruitiness, soft floral notes, vanilla, milk chocolate, sweet oranges, green melon... all that in a well-balanced and elegant Whisky you will not soon forget.

The Highball brought Japanese Whisky back to life. Aside from some attention from overseas, Japanese Whisky consumption domestically was very low during the better part of the early 2000s. It wasn’t until 2008, when Suntory launched the Highball campaign featuring their Kakubin Whisky that things kicked off.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Japan is the second biggest producer of Single Malt Whisky in the world.
In recent years, Japanese Whiskies have won several top prizes at the World Whisky Awards and have consistently scored higher than Scotch Whiskies in blind tastings. Talk about a student surpassing the master!
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.
It's not uncommon for Japanese Whisky to be aged in mizunara (Japanese oak) casks. Suntory conducted a research on how mizunara oak influences Whisky flavor and found out it adds coconut notes to it.
