Mars Kisoyama Yuhi, 40%

Price: $49 Issue: Spring 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This is sweeter than Mars Kisoyama, with a spicier finish making it a great choice for Highballs and mixing. The nose has ground spices with occasional more aromatic flourishes and hints of whole ginger root and garlic bulb. Some herbal notes in the initial sip, but the mouthfeel is delicate and carries pleasant flavors of caramel, toffee, fresh melon, baked apple, and a gentle spiciness. (BevMo-exclusive; 6,000 bottles).
