Seems too sweet and thick to come by it honestly

Notes: Produced in Korea, presumably bulk shipped to Taiwan and bottled, this spirit defines itself as “Asian Vodka and spirits distilled from polished rice & barley.” Sounds a bit like Soju to me (a native form of vodka/grain alcohol made in Korea) but the name Soju wouldn’t get it very far here. Not many people here have heard of Soju and those who have – well let’s just say FrenchMarc and Italian Grappa engenders the same feelings – which is why a number of distilled beverages have embraced the vodka name rather than a more correct regional one.

Appearance: Crystalline bright appearance,clear as a bell. Silver pool in the glass. On swirling, it leaves a thin clear coat on the inside of the glass with long thin legs and scalloped edging.

First Impression: Alcohol and grain. You can smell the traces of barley and the sweet notes from the rice. More vanilla notes then I suspect would be natural.

Taste: Slightly glycerin or antifreeze like body glides past the tongue nipping at it with the alcohol edge. Slight sweetness and very thick body.

Bottle: Clear glass bottle with some frosting at top and bottom with stylized Dragon on back through window of clear glass on front. Ribbed sides lend a little style and improve grip. Synthetic cork closure with paper seal finish the package .

Final Thoughts: Too sweet and seems to fake to not have been played with. Overboard version of Avian Fashion Victim Vodka in that they overdid all the flavoring and body modifying additives that I suspect the latter does. Avoid!
