Oohh, I heard good things about the 1978...

Working on the riesling, finally. Very nice, full-bodied (that's why they call it a Grand Cru, I guess...), nice balance and not too acidic. Seems to have mellowed out and settled a bit already. Nice drinking age for that one. Oh, it's a Meyer-Fonne Wineck Schlossberg 2008.

Crios Torrontes. Had it with Shrimp Tacos.



Started with a Zaca Mesa chard but it was corked

Being a wine-novice, I have been concerned that I won't know what "corked" is, and just assume I hate the wine. Then I went to visit my buddy who used to be a wine salesman and he broke out a 2006 Pepperbridge Merlot, and it was corked. I could not believe how bad it was.

Stefan


The word "sake" in Japan can actually refer to all alcoholic beverages in general, although it most often refers to the wine-like rice brew so tightly associated with that Illustration by Kakurezaki Ryuichiword overseas. But in some parts of Japan, most notably the far western and southern regions, the word sake is understood to refer to a totally different alcoholic beverage, also indigenous to Japan, but distilled and not brewed: shochu.

Like almost all such beverages throughout the world, shochu developed as it did as an expression of region, especially climate, cuisine and available raw materials. Perhaps the factor most affecting the development of shochu is the weather. The island of Kyushu and the western part of the island of Honshu are significantly warmer than the rest of Japan.

Brewing sake calls for relatively lower temperatures, but shochu can be distilled in these warmer regions. Also, the higher alcohol content and drier feel is more appealing to many in milder climates.

Unlike many other beverages, shochu is made from one of several raw materials. These include sweet potato, and shochu made from these is called "imo-jochu." Other materials commonly used include from rice, soba (buckwheat), and barley. There is even one island where there a few places that make shochu from brown sugar. It can also be made from more obscure things like chestnuts and other grains.

And, each of these raw materials gives a very, very distinct flavor and aroma profile to the final sake. These profiles run the gamut from smooth and light (rice) to peaty, earthy and strong (potato). Indeed, each of these raw materials lends a unique flavor in much the same way that the peat and barley of each region in Scotland determine the character of the final scotch whiskey.

There are, in fact, many parallels between shochu and scotch, regional distinction based on local ingredients being only one of them.

Another parallel to scotch can be found in the distillation methods. There are basically two main methods of distillation. The older method - it has been around since the 14th century or so - involves a single round of distillation only, and is made using only one raw material. Known as Otsu-rui (Type B - in an admittedly loose translation) or Honkaku ("the real thing") shochu, this type will more often reflect the idiosyncrasies of the original raw material. In this sense, it can be likened to single malt scotches.

The second method is one in which the shochu is goes through several distillations, one right after another. It is often made with several of the commonly used raw materials. Known as Kou-rui (Type A, in the same admittedly loose translation) shochu, this method has only been around since 1911, although it only became a legal classification in 1949. With a bit of a stretch, this kind of shochu is similar to much blended scotch. In other words, it is much smoother, ideal for mixing in cocktails, and with much less … well, character.

Beyond these variables, the type of koji mold (used to create sugar from the starch of the raw materials during the fermentation step that necessarily takes place before distillation) can be one of three, (yellow koji, as is used with sake, white koji and black koji) and the distillation itself can take place at either atmospheric pressure or at a forced lower pressure. These parameters too naturally affect the style of the final product.

Kou-rui shochu, of which much more is produced by far, is quite versatile. As it is lighter and cleaner, it lends itself well to use in mixed drinks. Perhaps its most ubiquitous manifestation is the popular "chu-hi," a shochu hi-ball made using a plethora of different fruit flavors and sold in single-serving cans or mixed fresh at bars and pubs. (Since it is supposedly cleaner by virtue of having been repeatedly distilled, it is said by some to give less of a hangover, although there is no evidence to truly back this up.)

Otsu-rui shochu, the "real thing" honkaku-shochu, on the other hand, has a more artisan, hand crafted appeal associated with it. The nature of the raw material can really come through, and be it soba, rice, barley, or chestnuts, each has its fans and foes. This is especially true when it has been distilled at atmospheric pressure, not forced lower pressure.

Perhaps the most interesting - and illustrious - of all shochu are those made from the sweet potatoes of Kagoshima Prefecture: imo-jochu. While the flavors can be heavier and more earthy than shochu made from other starches, Kagoshima imo-jochu offers complexity and fullness of flavor that makes it quite enjoyable to many a connoisseur.

Honkaku "the real thing" shochu is usually enjoyed straight, on the rocks, or with a splash of water. Another way to enjoy either type of shochu is known as "oyu-wari," which is simply mixing it with a bit of hot water. This both backs the alcohol off a bit, releases flavor and aroma, and warms the body to the very core. Unbeatable in winter, for sure. From experience, I can guarantee it will warm you from the core outward.

Shochu overall is enjoying massive popularity these days in Japan. Over the last couple of years, both beer and sake consumption have continued to drop, where as shochu has actually increased.

While shochu has its roots in either China or Korea, probably having come across during trading, the traditional home of shochu in Japan is Kagoshima, on the island of Kyushu. In fact, the first usage of the term shochu appeared in graffiti written by a carpenter dated 1559 in a shrine in the city of Oguchi in Kagoshima.

Kagoshima is rightfully proud of their shochu heritage. It is the only prefecture in Japan that brews absolutely no sake, but only produces shochu. If you ask for sake down there, expect and enjoy the local sweet-potato distillate.

The difference between soju and shochu
Korea also makes shochu, although it is called soju in Korean. And, Korean producers got to the US with it first. As such, in US legalese, the product is known as shochu. As far as I know, all Japanese shochu will be legally referred to as soju in the US. It is, in essence, the same thing. Judge it on its flavor, not its label.

crushed watermelon you say?

sachem allison
11-02-2012, 12:02 AM
yes or a good cantalope or Charentais ( I think that's how you spell it ) melon. The riper the better. It really depends on the shochu, It's a lot like grappa and depending on the ingredient used to make it, you may not want to mix it. I find Shochu made from rice works best in this drink or my favorite an unfiltered sake.

I ask a simple question and I get an education, gotta love this forum - Thanks Son! No melons or limes in the house, gotta pick some up tomorrow and will try it in different ways. Tonight it's probably cold 'Whispering Angel', a Cotes de Provence rose with an English name. Made me skeptical but the store guy insisted it was good. We'll see.

It was there, I was there. What the hell. It doesn't do you any good in the bottle.lol How do you know what it taste like if you never drink it.

Back in 2002 I was in Fayetteville, NY working at a place called the Wellington House. I was the Exec there. We did a big wedding 300 people or so. I prepped, cooked and plated the whole entire thing by myself
7 passed canapes and 7 courses. I almost died from exhaustion running around . No cooks, no dishwasher and no help. The boss didn't want to pay for any staff and the Chef that was working there walked out two days before the event. I was pulled from a sister restaurant and asked if I could help them out. they didn't tell me what I was getting into. I pulled it off, just barely. The father of the Bride new what was going on and was sweating bullets. When he saw everything going so smoothly and heard all the compliments from the guest he finally relaxed. When it came time to pay the bill, he pulled me aside and gave me a $2000 tip and a case of this wine. Every year I drink one or two. THis years almost up and I have 1 bottle left. Might have it for Christmas. It was a very good year and damn tasty too. Things are fine, Thanks for asking. If things ever get that bad, there will be one hell of a give away on this forum.lol

I really enjoyed the glass of Blanton's with just a drop or three of water that I just finished.

I am super excited, just bought a case of Old Jubilation Ale by Avery Brewing Company. This stuff only comes out once a year and usually goes pretty fast. It tastes wonderful, has 8.3%ABV, and is cellarable for up to 3 years. I highly recommend.

Hermannator, by Vancouver Island Brewery, out once a year for a few weeks:

Brewed in limited batches each year, Hermannator Ice Bock was first introduced by Hermann, one of our original Brewmasters, during the holiday as a unique gift to his closest friends and customers. Crafted at 9.5% abv, using a signature blend of chocolate and caramel malts, this German Eisbock is slowly cold aged in our cellar for over 3 months.

And, Ugly Sweater Milk Stout, made by Parallel 49, awesome but smooth dark beer.

I love Tokaj. And in my past life (before I started monitoring brainsausage's every move), I used to go to Hungary quite a bit and would often bring back a nice bottle of Tokaj (among other bottles) -- but boy were they expensive even in country. Since then, I have never been that impressed with the Tokaj offerings in the US though. To this day, Tiffan's Grande Selection red blend was one of the best bottles I have ever had. Malatinszky is also a good producer.

I had a few sweet Tokajis but don't remember the producers :( In any case, they can be beautiful, almost as good as a German TBA ;) That said, the bottle that had turned on me was a light, dry Tokaji which makes a beautiful aperitif or companion to fish dishes. From 2005 it was clearly over the hill, that's something to be drunk in the first few years. The sweet ones should keep forever. Well, almost.

Your drinking choices/patterns as of late are one that suggest you might be moving and don't want to travel with a bunch of wine you have been saving. Just seems like it to me. You should have seen the wines I started downing before I got divorced from wife v.1. That was some good stuff.

Sounds like what I did before I left Germany :) Part of it is to reduce the stash a bit and regroup (only a 50 bottle fridge at this point, anyway), I will move again in 2 weeks but only within town. But to be honest, part is also that I had a few people around me die this year, and I decided that rather than waiting for a special day I might as well make a day special by opening a good bottle, who knows what will be in a week or two...

No wine tonight, but looking forward to a couple of bottles of Dead Guy Ale while packing boxes again. Good thing I still hadn't unpacked all of them from the last move...

Switched over to Weihenstphaner Korbinian. Very Germanic compared to the Belgium darks I have been drinking of late. No extra sugar to be fond here.

Drinking a malt beverage tonight. Ommegang Seduction, a 'Belgian Style Porter'. Not bad, I am usually very conservative when it comes to adding stuff to beer (raspberries?.. Paleeeeese!), but this is anther one where, of all things, a little chocolate works well. Never would have thought that.

Not for $85 a 4 pack. I don't care how good it is.....now at 40 Euros a case, which is still pretty freakin' pricey for Belgium, i will try to sneak a 6 pack back in the country after I drink the other 18 bottles over there. :biggrin:

I would gladly pay that to try it, plus the glasses with it were nice too. Does anyone on here live in Belgium? If so, would u be willing to get and ship a case? I would gladly pay for it. Love a good beer

You can only get one case or 24 .33l bottles per car license plate and phone number every two months and you pick up your case at the gates of the monastery. The sometimes have some at a higher price at the gift shop next door, but it goes quickly. You used to be able to get 10 every two months, but that was before all of the beer mags and webstires started writing about it. The monks are just that....monks. They have no interesting in making more money. The only reason that they made this extra batch was because they needed to pay for some major renovation at the monastery including a new roof from what I read. I guess that is a really long winded way of saying that you would have to have a REALLY good Belgian friend who doesn't drink beer, which i do. Plus, i always bring him stuf from the US that he would nromally pay 2-3 times as much for, so he owes me.:lol2:

Last night was a grolsch, two sam adams and a swift buffalo trace.

first neat bourbon for me, interesting one, oddly similar to a lot of the aged rums I drink with that fruit/sweet/smoke taste.

Almost like a mixture between a rum and scotch.

'tis the season for in-law irritation. 80+ proof 'medication' does seem to relieve some of the symptoms.

Free airport-lounge white wine, but I bought a split of Duckhorn merlot for my layover in Atlanta.
