Collaborative whiskies between distilleries is a practice common in Scotland that few Japanese distilleries have undertaken until now – we are honored to release a few coveted bottles each of the Ichiro x Mars 2021 collaboration whiskies!
These bottles are like unicorns and we thought we should put a fair price on them instead of charging for one of your organs. We'll be serving flights of these two extremely special whiskies at our bar from May 13-15 (Friday through Sunday), and you'll have a chance to buy a bottle for yourself through a raffle drawing when you purchase a flight. Visit the bar as many times as you'd like this weekend to increase your chance at a bottle!
This is an unparalleled collaboration between two of Japan's most iconic whisky distilleries so don't miss this special opportunity to taste the whiskies.
Flight includes taste pours of Ichiro's Malt Double Distilleries 2021 + Komagatake Malt Duo 2021, plus one raffle ticket to purchase one of the bottles. $100 / $90 members. First come, first served. Payment taken at event.
A blended malt whisky comprised of over 51% Ichiro's Malt and blended with Komagatake Malt. Both juices are aged for a minimum of five years, but this one is finished in the temperate climate around Chichibu Distillery in Saitama using a combination of ex-Bourbon, Sherry, and American Oak casks. Cherry, watermelon, stone fruit, and guava on the nose wrap themselves in warm, cinnamon-vanilla cake batter with a long lasting Dr. Pepper-like spice throughout. 53% ABV / US Release of 420 bottles
A blended malt whisky comprised of over 51% Komagatake malt and blended with Ichiro’s Malt. Both juices are aged a minimum of five years, but this one is finished in the high elevation of Mars Shinshu Distillery in Nagano using a combination of ex-Bourbon, Sherry, and American Oak casks. Brine and seaweed complement bright yellow peach with a hint of bubblegum sweetness. Orange blossom and tobacco come through on a medium finish that lingers with a surprisingly soft mouth feel given the high proof. 54% ABV / U.S. Release of 1170 bottles
