Jin Shuan

Product code: CSTW-14
Add to my notebook

The Jin Shuan cultivar is prized in Taiwan for its floral character and texture reminiscent of cream and butter. The full-bodied liquor is both delicate and rich. The taste of flowers (lily, dandelion) and pine nuts harmonizes to make this one of our mildest and most refreshing wulongs.
