This is a light and crisp apple-flavored chuuhai using apples from the Tohoku region of Japan – the region that suffered the most damage from the March 11th, 2011 earthquake. Usually, apple chuuhai are around 3% alcohol, but this one gives that extra 2% to help you get your buzz on. It is a bit high on the calories, however – I could do without a lot of the sugar here. But overall, it’s a pretty solid and flavorful limited edition chuuhai.
