Mars Iwai Whisky
This whiskey is composed of an usual blend of 65% corn, 10% Rye, and 25% non peated malt. Hombo Shuzo, the owner of the distillery is one of Japan’s top wine producers and therefore has access to a great number of cask types. The entry level Iwai is aged for 3-5 years in 100% ex-bourbon barrels.
This whisky is named after Kiichiro Iwai, known as “The Silent Pioneer of Japan Whisky,” and the former mentor of Masataka Taketsuru, the founder of Nikka and Suntory Whisky.
