Ginza Suzume Kohaku Shochu

$42

 This is a barley spirit (Shochu) and is distilled in oak bourbon whiskey barrels, creating a mellow taste and golden color. Nose is mainly wood, barrel notes. Tastes of toasted vanilla and green rye spices. Pair with grilled red meat or smoked cheeses (maybe gouda). Good gateway for those who love bourbon/whiskey/scotch.

Nice solid Sochu

This is a solid Sochu, we tried this with several variations of highballs. The Okinawa method of using coffee -- we added it in an iceball glass with a splash of espresso. Very nice

We tried it was just a smidge of a Vanilla extract that we keep around. Good

We tried it with a splash of cola. Pretty good

Lastly, we tried it with a bit of pepper ume plumb wine to give it a kick. Probably my favorite

Lots of fruits and florals in the base that open up a university of potential combinations. Kamado ginger/garlic scallops with a Sochu Ginger highball was the bomb
