Mars Iwai Tradition
The Whiskey: Blended
The Distillery: ABV: 40%
Enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or as part of a cocktail, the Mars Iwai Tradition is a premium option part of the greater Mars collection, though at an extremely reasonable price.
Aged in both bourbon, sherry, and wine casks, Mars Iwai Tradition provides a complex sip that may or may not be too peaty for the untrained palate. In any case, this bottle of Japanese whisky deserves a front-row placement on the shelves of every whiskey drinker’s home.
Aromas of peat, malt, and smoke, palate serving smoked meats, peppercorn, and nuts, and finishing the flavour with creamy caramel notes, this whisky pairs well with red meat!
