Urakasumi Hiyaoroshi: Buy 1st Bottle & Get 2nd Bottle for 5 cents! Big thank you to Kazu, you get to enjoy this wonderful sake twice for the price of one. Also, when taking a sip of this sake please remember that the brewery took substantial damage during the earthquake last March. The fact that you are able to enjoy this fine brew right now is a tribute to the resiliency of the people who work so hard in the kura, and the Japanese people as a whole.

Urakasumi Hiyaoroshi

From Miyagi Prefecture. Tokubetsu Junmai. SMV: +1 Acidity: 1.5~1.6

This brewery was significantly damaged in the earthquake and it's great to see their Fall release in this very fridge. The nose is a collection of steamed rice, grains, molasses, and brown sugar. Like a favorite shirt or pair of pants this brew feels good on the palate. Not as rich as year's past the smoothness is unmistakable. There are so many savory and rich elements but caramel and vanilla come forth first. Semi-thick with a sweet-nut personality there is gentle creaminess that is both bright and round. A mid-sized glass captures the best side. WORD: Smooth WINE: Pinot Noir/Soft Whites BEER: Round Ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, oysters, grilled fare, gentle pastas. $35 (720ml)
