Sơn Tinh
Nếp Cẩm Sticky Red Rice "Port" Liqueur

Category: Asian Specialty Spirit

Date Tasted:
Country: Vietnam
Alcohol: 27%
Bright dark amber color. Bright, interesting, fruity umami aromas of spicy baked goji berries, dried mushrooms, soy roasted nuts, and peppery spices with a satiny, racy, sourish medium-full body and a tingling, elegant, medium-long fresh cut wheatgrass, honeyed dried cherries, dusty beets, and peppered kale finish. A very interesting earthy, fruity, vegetal spirit; try as a vermouth in cocktails.
