The distinctive blue bottle is an appropriate vessel for this kokuto shochu [translation is "black sugar" but commonly referred to as "brown sugar" but most similar to pure sugar cane!]. The result is a gentle, light flavor that has an initial medium-rich sweet alcohol bite which mellows the more one drinks becoming softer on the back of the throat. Its fragrant, fruity, and sugarcane aroma is transporting to the point one envisions being on a tropical island. Having been made with sugarcane, it may be compared to a light rum.
