Kiichiro Iwai is the pioneer of Japanese whiskey. "IWAI TRADITION" is his traditional model for Mars Whisky. In contrast, the taste of Mars whisky "IWAI" is lighter. Blended with Japanese whiskey for a woody and light taste, it brings out the gorgeous aromas stored in bourbon barrels, ready to be savored freely. Sweet, with fruit flavors such as pear and papaya, with hints of red fruit and vanilla.
It's a refreshing taste.
