The complex aroma of this baijiu displays savoury soy, spice, beans and prunes, with underlying notes of honey and hazelnut. On the palate the flavours of soy come through with the addition of black bean sauce, subtle underlying notes of honey and vanilla, with a pleasant sweetness on the finish punctuated by a zingy acidity.
Fenjiu is also often enjoyed neat, as a lifestyle drink on ice or in cocktails, due to its complex and unique layers of fragrance and flavour. It is also a fabulous addition to both Chinese and Western cooking and baking, including rich chocolate desserts.
