    The Japanese origin is the most exciting thing about this whisky.

    One of the more bland whiskies I've tried in recent memory, the Mars Kasai Blended Whisky is really not a whisky I would recommend.
    • Nose
      Somewhat spirit-y, which I honestly can't say I experience in modern whiskies a lot. Some bitter oak, breakfast cereals and polished brash, but also cooked veggies and vanilla. Maybe a sliver of smoke, but overall a bit bland.
    • Taste
      Thin mouthfeel. The arrival leads with sweet, stewed fruits accompanied by bitter oak, subtle smoke and gentle spices.
    • Finish
      Short. Oak, cough drops and vanilla.

  3. robbert88 scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    I doubt very much between 74 and 75 points. There just isn't much in this whiskey. In the end, I assumed the most critical. So 74….
    • Nose
      N: vanilla, oak which has been used several times / “lazy wood”, cocoa, slight bitterness from the oak, slightly sweet fruit such as apple, peach, light white pepper, play-doh
    • Taste
      P: vanilla, salted caramel, wood bitters, and there seems to be a puff of smoke in it. Apple and honey.
    • Finish
      F: short. Vanilla, oak, citrus, white pepper, peaches.

  4. [2stoned] aKu scored this whisky 45 points Expert Senior

    off note in the nose, which some might pass for light smoke; provokes a sting; a tart fruit that might resemble pineapple; Vanilla can be guessed.

    Thin in the mouth and slight bitterness; metallic; trivial.

    The departure bitter; with a lot of good will a hint of cocoa (not Kaba but more correct) and some oak; but mostly just bitter.

    The nose is still the "best". Most of the 3cl sample went into the cola with ice. He was okay for that. It is simply not usable as a luxury drink and there are even better ones for whiskey and cola. The 45 points are benevolently awarded by me here.

  9. Dieter_W scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    Very fruity, lots of pineapple, light on the nose, very slightly smoky.
    But very watery on the palate, here too very light fruity whiskey comes to the fore.

    Phew, that's nothing at all ... even the cola would be a shame for me. Not again!

    Lacking in flavour generic mixing whiskey

  18. Cupster scored this whisky 65 points Member Senior

    Cheese feet, stale brackish water. Perhaps the worst whiskey on my tasting list.
    In addition, it is scratchy and alcoholic.
    Second tasting the following day showed the same result.

    Very weak, insignificant nose. Something from NewMake. Powerless and just as unimportant on the palate. Disturbing bitterness. Hands off.

    Pleasant and mild, ideal for summer.

    • Nose
      74 74
      Light and floral, with a slightly tangy citrus note. Without the slight alcohol note you could hardly perceive anything. Pleasant, but very little flavors come through.

      Salary, a little alcoholic. Somewhat reminiscent of vodka. Virtually no taste, at most slightly floral.

  27. LoverCop1989 scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    No. 10 of my Tatillery advent calendar. For me personally much too sweet in taste and finish. When I heard the smell, I thought "oh it couldn't be that bad" ... well ... it's ok. For people who prefer sweet drops and don't want to dig too deep into their pockets, this is definitely an alternative.
    • Nose
      79 79
      At the beginning there is a strong floral note (as if you were smelling a bouquet of flowers), followed by a slight sweetness gapaart with a light fruitiness, then a somewhat unsuitable and slightly pungent smoky note, possibly also forest herbs
    • Taste
      74 74
      strong honey note, significantly sweeter and fruity than the aroma, vanilla, slightly spicy, some oak, very minimal smoke
    • Finish
      71 71
      very mild, short-medium length, very sweet, a lot of vanilla, a little honey, bitter aromas from coffee

    pleasant fruity, vanilla nose and that's about it
    mouth on the yellow-orange fruit in compote, sweet, honey too, vanilla, a little peppery, a little cinnamon and a sweetness, pastry limit
    short to fast finish, just to pick up another one.

  35. tommy12 scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    colored, nevertheless only light color, pleasant slightly fruity aroma (apples), very thin taste (honey, slight sweetness), short finish, no one needs that. For this price, I recommend z. B. Bunnahabhain 12 or Glendronach 12. They are light years better! (I rated the Mars Kaisi on the basis of a free sample.)
