This superbly packaged brew has a voluminous nose filled with strawberry, melon, banana, vanilla, and spring onion elements. Talk about one of "Those" kind of sakes that has attitude, complexity and supreme drinkability. Round, chewy, fat and solid with a smorgasbord of flavors that ride on a smooth genshu (undiluted) feeling. How can so many fruity elements - berries, melon, kiwi, and tropical fruits - drink with such a comfortable dryness? The balance is off the charts solid, which is so unique considering how bright this sake drinks. Go spelunking for the vein of vanilla and use a mid-sized glass for best acidity distribution. WORD: Voluptuous WINE: Bordeaux/French Chardonnay BEER: Belgian Ales FOODS: Complex fare, ptés, smoked fish, grilled game, steak.

Prefecture: Hiroshima
SMV: +5
