Not for children!!

Today we hung out with old friends of Semi from when they went to university together in Saitama. Semi spoke Japanese almost the whole time, so I got to hang out with their super cute and hyper kid. To make things better, they had a bottle of Kurokoji Yakunoshima Imo Shochu in their fridge, and of course I had to try.

The potato shochu was clear and smelled slightly like mushrooms, but in general not like much. It had a mild slightly sweet taste that was maybe a bit watery, but which also made it easy to drink. It was quite nice and easy to drink even though it was 25 percent. I don’t drink a lot of shochu but this one was a solid drink.

(A fun evening and reunion after a whopping eight or nine years!! Thank you for the hospitality, Gori family!!)
