Tasting Notes

The pronounced nose of roasted grains coalesces around toasted sesame, reminiscent of black sesame ice cream. The initial taste is surprisingly neutral, but that quickly gives way to a rich sweetness of full-on toasted sesame. A smooth, mellow mouth-feel slides into the finish of peanut butter. It’s completely unique in the shochu world and you’d be hard-pressed to find a spirit of any kind that rivals its nuttiness.
