Mars chose its high altitude location in the mountains for its moderate humidity and high quality water. This blend consists of mostly malt and some grain. The whisky is aged in bourbon, sherry, and wine barrels.

Tasting Notes

"Here we have a full meal from the whisky’s kitchen. Fumes of briny peat, malt, and robust smoke emanate from its double doors. The palate serves up smoked meats, crushed almonds and peppercorns, along with a generous helping of creamy malt. You’ll want to chew on this for a bit."
