Shinshu Mars 1992 for Shinanoya #1143

This Shinshu Mars was bottled for Shinanoya in 2004 and is 12 years old. Aged in an American white oak cask and bottled at 43% vol. in 720ml bottles.

  • Nose: Tropical fruits, oak, honey, strawberries, sweet herbal tea
  • Mouth: Oak and malt, spices, relatively dry
  • Finish: Malt, burnt cookies, oak, grassy, malt, dry and not overly long
Comment: Very nice nose, full and fruity but the mouth and finish can't keep up. Maybe partly due to the 43% vol. A little bit more would have helped for sure, as it stands it feels a little bit shallow.
