TTL Yushan Red Kirin 12 Years Old Kaoliang Liquor (Taiwan), 52% abv, n/a

87
Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

Unique and exotic spirit opens with roasted soybeans, burned sourdough, and white pear on the nose. Honey-tinged palate with fire-roasted chestnuts, preserved lemon, fresh wood, and a wonderful umami note that builds on the finish. Mineral, savory, and long.
