Tasting: strong and pleasant alcohol attack. beautiful dark black coffee.Roasted coffee beans, almost expresso coffee.
Alcohol pleasantly lingering on tongue and back of the mouth.
Tends to somewhat sweeten with the second sip.
lingers for a while before disappearing with a strong and pleasant dark coffee note at the back of the palate.
Strong and dry coffee attack with every new sip.

Comments: very dangerous shochu as it constantly invites/entices you to the next sip making you forget this is indeed a strong spirit!
Best appreciated on the rocks, but still very pleasant on its own at room temperature!
Easily becomes a bad habit. Can actually make for the perfct disgestif without a push coffee!

Recommended pairings: cheese, choclate, ice creams.
