Aka Kirishima



Tasting Notes

The aroma immediately sets this shochu apart from others in the class as it smells faintly of red wine. This tannic nose follows with a similar acidity on the palate. It remains vaguely reminiscent of red wine, but only if you don’t think of it that way.  The flavor mellows throughout the sip and finishes with a sweet finish, which is unexpected after the sharp start.
