Product details

This blended malt comes to us from the Mars Shinshu distillery, based at just over 798 metres above sea level with a glorious view of Mt. Komagatake. It opened in 1985, though it was forced in 1992 to close due to lack of demand. It opened up again in 2012 to much better circumstances, and one of the expressions to come from the distillery since its reopening is this one, Mars Maltage “Cosmo”.

The name is a nod to the distillery’s location, and the stunning night sky that can be seen from its mountainous spot. While it’s blended and bottled at the site in Japan, and does feature a proportion of Japanese whisky, you’ll also find malts in here from undisclosed Scottish distilleries. Lots of light, delicate florals and fruity notes to enjoy!
