The pioneer of Sesame Shochu, a smooth, mellow mouthfeel slides into the finish of peanut butter. Beniotome is produced with no additives, it is stored for three years, giving it a soft, rich flavor with an intense, yet comforting aroma of golden toasted sesame paste. Unlike any other!
The pronounced nose of roasted grains coalesces around toasted sesame, reminiscent of black sesame ice cream. The initial taste is surprisingly neutral, but that quickly gives way to a rich sweetness of full-on toasted sesame.
It’s completely unique in the Shochu world and you’d be hard pressed to find a spirit of any kind that rivals its nuttiness without the sickly sweet of the flavored abominations.
