Mars whisky is releasing their 2021 Komagatake Single Malt via lottery.

This time it’ll release a massive 50,000 bottles, which makes its 2020 edition release of 15,000 bottles pale in comparison. 

Guess they felt with all that’s happening, everyone could use a drink. 🤷‍♂️

In any case, this will be a non-age statement release, but it is consistent with the new Japanese Whisky regulations, which is to say it was entirely distilled and matured for at least 3 years in Japan.

It is a vatting of predominantly ex-Bourbon aged whisky with the addition of Sherry cask aged whisky.

 

In case you were wondering, this is what a persimmon looks like - like a tomato - but it tastes sweet, mild and honey-like. Its taste is comparable to that of an apricot or quince. (Image Source: Japan Today)

 

Mars says that this bottling will come with a fruity nose and a sweet persimmon flavored palate. It will be bottled at 48% abv.

The lottery runs from 10 AM August 30th to 9:59 AM September 8th 2021.
