This Mars The Lucky Cat Hana is a brand new release from Hombo Mars that is the 5th edition in their popular Lucky Cat series. This one is a delicious blend of malt and grain whisky that has been finished in the finest Oloroso sherry wood available, resulting in a richly fruity, spicy and smooth expression. The label is based on a quiet and gentle female cat named “Hana” and it shows her sitting patiently in a distillery maturation warehouse surrounded by barrels.
As with the previous releases in the series, this is one that is well worth trying, even for those new to whisky.
*This particular bottling was produced prior to the introduction of Japanese whisky labeling standards in February 2021.*
