Masumi Junmai Ginjo Hiyaoroshi SE27 "Sleeping Beauty"

The nose on this fall released sake is a gentle collection of cocoa, lemon peel, oatmeal, and steamed rice aromas. Behold a very unique version of Masumi’s Hiyaoroshi that is far more complex than year’s past. Round, smooth, and a little snappy this brew is loaded with some very interesting flavors such as raisin, crisp apple, black berries, and cooked persimmon. There is a very interesting astringency that jumps between a subtle tartness and a refreshing sour quality that makes this sake drink very much like a big dry red wine. A wine glass makes this sake drink with better balance, and it drinks much more rich closer to room temperature. Warming brings out more tartness. WORD: Complex WINE: Dry reds/Crisp whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Rich fall fare, meats, game, fowl. (2019)

The nose on this specially released seasonal draft sake is a gentle collection of cinnamon, cream, roasted rice, earthy, and nutty aromas. Hiyaoroshi sake were made to be stored for a brief time to achieve a certain flavor point that goes well with fall cuisine flavors, which tend to be rich and savory. Round, smooth, clean this once pasteurized brew is very user-friendly that has a lightness to go with its richness. There is a Ginjo feeling that has hints of flan and is very slippery. Look for hints of sweet rice, caramel, crème brûlée, and a gentle creaminess that opens up as the sake warms in the glass. WORD: Clean WINE: Merlot/Soft whites BEER: Belgian Ales FOODS: Fall rich flavors from the grill and sauce pot.(2018)
