Lychee was once a favorite fruit of Emperor Li Longi’s special concubine, Yang Yuhuan in the Tang Dynasty. HANA Lychee appeals with aroma that fulfills the palate with the intense flavor of this exotic fruit. The lovely, lingering finish continues the rich lychee taste. Its low alcohol makes it a fine aperitif, either straight up or on the rocks.

Bottle, 75cl. Clear, almost colorless, and flat. Lovely aroma with cedar and lychee. Sweet flavor with cedar notes, some peppery hints and a fruity almost citrusy hint. Full body, no alcohol burn. Lasting cedar and lychee finish. A pretty wonderful one, although a tad sweet. 140214

Bottle at Chris O’s pre-GBBF shindig, 2013. Clear pour. Fruit syrup aroma. More fruit syrup in the flavour, like the juice from the fruit cocktail tins back in the 70s/80s. Are they still about?

Leighton (13041) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle at the 2013 ChrisO Pre-GBBF Shindig - London. I picked this one up in London, somewhere around Covent Garden/ Soho, near Chinatown like. Pours clear with pretty much no color. Highly floral aroma, some violets, ripe fruits. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with lots of sugary fruit, lychee, super floral notes, some light vanilla accents. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Sugary finish with more sweet fruit and flowers. Novel stuff. Quite different from standard, non-fruited sakes.
