This is the second of Mars Hombo's new whisky series! A blend of juice from Mars Hombo and Tsunuki distilleries, aged exclusively on Yakushima Island,Β known for its wildlife and cedar forests. Many whiskies are aged in colder climates like Scotland and Hokkaido, but Mars is putting into practice what the rum industry has known for years – warm climate equals faster aging. Notes of smokey grilled pineapple, salted mango, banana cream and pie crust with a medium long finish. A vintage for your shelves for years to come.

Mars Hombo Distillery has the highest altitude of all the distilleries in Japan. Situated in Nagano (the Japanese Alps) at an elevation of over 2600 feet, the temperature drops to 5Β°F. With fresh, ample snowfall, Mars Shinshu Distillery is situated in an ideal place for whisky production.
