The third in Mars Komagatake's Nature of Shinshu series, which focuses on botanicals local to the distillery, is Shinanotanpopo, which means 'dandelion flower' in Japanese.
Shinanotanpopo is made from a blend of different casks, including ex-bourbon, sherry and white oak – some of which were over 20 years old. This is a floral dram with additional notes of red fruits and soft spices.

It's a good whisky but not a great whisky, is it worth the money? I don't think so in my opinion, it lacks depth and character. You can get a very good scotch for this price too. I've tasted a lot of Japanese whisky and the quality is in decline unfortunately. I bought this and a couple of other Japanese whiskies hoping to ignite some nostalgia of past purchases but all have been in vain. Although I do enjoy this whisky I just think it lacks an edge that makes it worth over £100 in my opinion
Great stuff. Very smooth and has flavors of fruit, berries, caramel, and some smoke. Reminds me of a sweeter Highland Park
Lots of flavors. Fruit, berries, slight smoke/peat, and caramel. Smooth.
Having tried most Japanese whisky available at this time this was a shock to the system, definitely not your usual Japanese whisky, would recommend
