I daresay, TaKaRa’s chuuhai might be growing on me, or at least their Ryuukyuu (old name for Okinawa before it was part of Japan) Highball series might not be as bad as their other products. This highball is so sweet it crushes the normally extremely bitter taste of the shikuwasa and is rather unassumingly. Unless I knew it was shikuwasa, I would have just assumed it was lime + loads of sugar. The disgusting TaKaRa aftertaste I have noticed in many of their chuuhai is absent here. Finally, a TaKaRa I wouldn’t mind drinking again! Success!
