Hanamikura Daiginjo Kasutori Shochu 720ml
Honkaku shochu distilled from the pressings of Hanamikura super premium daiginjo sake.
A complex rice shochu with subtle aromas of cardamon, anise and stacks of ¥10,000 bank notes. A very mild smooth and refined palate with hints of Hanamikura Kuro daiginjo.
Yamada Nishiki sake rice milled to 35% of the grain remaining.
Tasting notes are based on an initial serving temperature of 20℃ served straight up.
Shochu is generally about 25% alcohol which is not overly strong for a spirit so it can be enjoyed quite readily. However in Japan the shochu otaku will water down their shochu to about the strength of wine / to taste and let it sit for a day or so. This method is called Maewari and can bring out the aromas and subtle flavours in the shochu.
