This imo is distilled from Satsuma sweet potatoes from the Kagoshima Prefecture at the south end of Kyushu Island (Fukuoka is in the north of the island). The nose of this imo, while still earthy, promises a sweetness that’s immediately delivered onto the palate. The rich flavor has a buttery mouth feel, which is both surprising and decadent. The sweetness subsides into a pleasant herbal finish that lingers with a faintly minty clean freshness.
