Yinro Soju

Category: Soju

Date Tasted:
Country: Taiwan
Alcohol: 40%
Brilliant clear color. Interesting aromas of sprouted grains in a sack, toffee and flour, peppered dried apple, and magic marker with a silky, medium-to-full body and a warming, interesting, medium-length warming cereal with cream and sugar, peppered germ, and asian mushroom finish. A very warming, umami-driven and palate-stimulating soju for cocktails.

Soju is a beverage distilled from a number of ingredients, among them rice, barley and even sweet potatoes. It is made in South Korea, where it is the national beverage; alcohol may not exceed 35%. It is traditionally served neat over ice.

Many examples tend to have a clear appearance with mild flavors such as nougat, marshmallow or melon. Soju is comparable to a very mild vodka.
