Review and Tasting


Sampled on 27/10/2013

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Pungent peppery spirit and fermenting yeast with ripe peach skin.

Taste:

Intense spirit notes and favour with slight sweetness and peach fruity notes with pear drops.

Aftertaste:

Best liked to sweet peach hairspray. Considered a delicacy in China this potent spirit is unlikely to appeal to many western palates. I’ve sored this 2/5 before but in its category it’s a 5/5 and I can appreciate its sweet fruity estery notes, hence my middle of the road score.
