Mars Shinshu's popular lwai Tradition release finished in Cabernet Sauvignon casks sourced from an undisclosed yet very famous winery located in Napa Valley, California. This annual wine cask finished release is the only to use American wine casks which imparts a deeper ruby hue and sweetness to the whisky when compared both to its Japanese and French wine cask finish counterparts.
Limited Release Japanese Whisky.
Barrels: Ex-Bourbon, Sherry & American White Oak - Finished in an Ex-Napa Cabernet Sauvignon
Aromas of dried cherry followed by slightly toasted flavors of vanilla & black pepper. Delicious Napa Cabernet Sauvignon notes linger in the finish.
