Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : Incolore.
  • Nose : Frais, charnu. Laiteux, la menthe blanche est parfumée d’une fine note abricotée. Les levures rappellent celles d’un vin du Jura. Il se dirige vers une poire Williams ou une mirabelle. Une sensation onctueuse est omniprésente.
  • Palate : Vive, tendue. Son acidité est rehaussée de piments et d’épices (cannelle, coriandre, gingembre). Elle évolue sur le noyau d’abricot et même la liqueur d’abricot. Elle s’appuie et s’attendrit sur la fécule (purée, pois cassés).
  • Overall : Se savoure comme l’on savoure une pomme de terre nouvelle. La terre séchée lui procure une sensation minérale. Ses tannins veloutés enrobent au fur et à mesure le palais. Le verre embaume les parfums estivaux de la récolte des légumes.
The brand

The brand

The shochu produced by Kuroki Honten is made from an organic cereal base in the prefecture of Miyazaki on the island of Kyushi in southern Japan. This is the ‘honkaku’ or ‘authentic’ type of shochu. Distilled once in pot stills, they have much in common with single malt whisky. Hyakunen no Kodaku is even aged five years in sherry casks, like many Speyside malts! Very fashionable in Japan, shochu has undergone a real revival, and Kuroki Honten is one of the most respected producers: its products can be found in all of the country’s best ‘Izakaya’.
