    Wait, I just read that Soju is like 24 abv. So the anger must come from the quantity then? Heightened body temperature caused by repetitive backwards forearm motions?

    Yeah generally if I go out for a soju bender, I have about 4-5 bottles to myself ~_~;;

    Korean soju generally tends to hover around 20 abv. The good stuff is usually Japanese (shochu). Good Korean soju never make it stateside.

    Anger comes from within.

    what makes it good soju? Ones I've had all just taste like rubbing alcohol

    I've seen flavored soju. There was one that's yuzu flavored

    Isn't it just korean schnapps?

    Schnapps comes in all sorts of disgusting flavors.

    Japanese shochu is good for the same reason Andong soju is good: they're both distilled properly instead of being flavored ethanol.

    Where does soonhari rank?


    Flavored soju is really new. Apparently started just last year.

    Isn't schnapps disgustingly sweet? I don't think soju is that sweet

    Had some kirschwasser recently that I thought was quite good

    soonhari is the same flavored ethanol, just that it's flavored with artificial fruit flavors and is low abv. you can just get drunk really fast and cheap without having to taste watery ethanol. green bottle soju is basically all the same shit. i think soonhari is around 16%?

    That Taichi piece is really, really nice. It's lined entirely in thick, soft cashmere fleece. It's also $2000 :(

    That's really nice. Mind linking me? I can't seem to find the product page, just not-cashmere-lined stuff.
