Shizuoka Shochu: Hamamatsu-Tenjigura Distillery-Shusseijo Chu Kome Shochu 25 Degrees


This is the second kome/rice shochu of the same name produced by Hamamatsu-Tenjingura Brewery in Hamamatsu City but it has the regular alcohol contents, that is 25 degrees!


Alcohol: 25 degrees

Clarity: very clear
Color: transparent
Aroma: assertive, dry and fruity. Roses, strawberries, rice
Taste: deep, dry and fruity attack.
Complex: rice, roses, grapes with strong hints of strawberries and faint notes of chestnuts, custard and dark chocolate on the end.
Strong but easy to drink even straight at room temperature.
Varies little with food but for a drier but still fruity general impression.

Overall: very elegant rice shochu!
No wonder is creator is a lady brew master.
Will be eminently enjoyable at all temperatures from chilled on the rocks to blended with hot water, but I still appreciated it most straight at room temperature!
Does marry beautifully with cheese!
