Erguotou is the more popular mass market style of Baijiu & Red Star is one of the biggest sellers.
Using a mixture of sorghum, wheat & peas – yes, peas! – it’s classified as ‘light aroma’ – although I experienced a joyously full on umami pungency on nosing.
Delightfully meaty on the palate.
The rich flavours maintained their wholesomeness despite the 56% strength.
I’m left a bit disappointed however.
Red Star was a delight – should have bought a larger bottle!
