The Korean and Japanese Variants of JINRO

SOJU:

the sweet potato vodka of korea;
excellent over ice,
and so well-distilled,
there's very little chance of a hangover the next day...



Korean:
42 proof
21% alcohol by volume
P75.00 for the 360ml bottle


Japanese:
48 proof
24% alcohol by volume
P230.00 for the 750ml bottle

I just learned to drink this stuff last January at Korean Garden, Jupiter St. The following day, I was at Sakura buying the Japanese version so I could compare both. I prefer the Korean Jinro. The ladies love it too. I was talking to an Aussie friend and he said that there is a proper way of drinking Soju when you're in a group. Like one person pours for another and there's something about seniority of rank or age. Are you familiar with this? How many bottles of the Korean version can you consume before calling it a night? Some say that the kick just comes in anytime....Glad you wrote about Jinro! Cheers..
