After noticing one of my tires was getting flat, I stopped by Costco today to have it fixed. There was a three hour wait at the tire center, so I called a cab and took a walk through Costco's liquor store while waiting for it. A Korean gentleman walked over when I was looking at a six pack of this,
And he recommended it. So I bought it. Just opened it a few minutes ago. The first surprise was finding this inside the box:

It's some sort of face mask, apparently. Odd to find in a six pack of an adult beverage.
Apparently, this stuff is an acquired taste. To me, it tastes like what a rocks glass of vodka tastes like after the ice melts. Which makes sense, considering that this Korean beverage is distilled from sweet potatoes and is about 20% alcohol -- about half the alcohol content as a typical 80 proof vodka. This stuff might work as a component in a sake sangria though.
