A year of short lived fad products is continuing with a cheap Bokbunja (Blackberry Wine) called Blessed Brother (복분자의 은혜 복받은 부라더). It’s from Bohae the same company that brought us Brother # Soda and some of the flavored Soju’s. This Bokbunja was released at the start of the year to the mass market and already it seems like the hype is dying down now. Here are our thoughts;
Thoughts: Firstly it’s tasty and sweet similar to Bokbunja, but lacking a little flavor and with a slight Soju style aftertaste. Secondly it’s pretty cheap ₩1,500 (Supermarket) or ₩3,000 to ₩5,000 in Bars and Restaurants. Finally the alcoholic content is 12% so it’s similar to wine and little less than Soju. On the negative side, it’s a little bland and for what it is a bit over priced in bars.
If you don’t want Soju but looking for something with a slight kick at a cheap price this is worth typing, but it’s nothing amazing hence the price.
