Oguchi Kuro Isanishiki Imo Shochu Paper PackRegular price $106.00
Japanese Name: 大口 黒 伊佐錦 芋焼酎
Kuro Isa-nishiki is made with brewery’s traditional black koji (mould) to create its gorgeous sweet potato aroma and a soft texture. This product is one of the pioneers of the current boom of black koji brewed shochu.
Using the Black koji to ferment this excellent Imo shochu by traditional method. Kuro Isanishki has the unmistakable earthy nose of an imo shochu. This yields to a buttery soft mouthfeel. Surprisingly supple given what’s in store otherwise. An extremely light sweetness yields to a very dry, tight finish.
The dryness would overwhelm except the soft mouth provides enough mellowness to create an interesting contrast. Recommended pairing with sushi, okonomiyaki, Hokkaido white curry rice and sashimi donburi.
Available in 1.8 LTR
