The name says it all: this Single Malt Japanese Whisky has spent its last months on a used beer barrel (India Pale Ale). Located right next to the Mars Shinshu Distillery is the Minami Shinshu Brewery: a craft beer producer where they actively use locally sourced ingredients to make delicious brews. IPA beer generally contains more hops than other specialty beers, which provides an extra bitterness. In addition, fruity flavors can often be found in IPA beer, which balance the bitter flavors. All of this is reflected in this fresh Mars Komagatake IPA Cask Finish.
Tasting Notes:
Nose: Citrus fruits first, then vanilla.
Taste: Sweet and malty with citrus notes in the background.
Finish: Sweet and bitter, after which it ends with a clear influence of the beer.
