The nose on this delicious Iwate Prefecture brew is a cool collection of grape, blueberry, green apple, kiwi, Asian pear, and sweet tomato aromas. Snap! This is one of “those kind” of sake. Those kind? Yes, the kind that you taste and a smile comes to your face, and all you can say is delicious! It’s delicious sake at its best. Why? There is a slippery water play that accompanies each sip that is full of flavor. Then there is this amazing watery glide that moves the brew through the palate. Juicy, bright, velvety, buoyant, lush, and gentle, but with an expansiveness that is more like flavor whispers. Look for strawberry, grape, blueberry, candy apple, powdered sugar, and rock candy flavors that float along each sip. It’s fruity, but not sweet. It’s more along the lines of a confectionary sugar that drinks like your favorite candy, without being too sweet. I’m smiling as I type this! WORD: Delicious WINE: Gentle Reds/Fruity Whites BEER: Sweet Ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, crab, lobster, oysters, fruit and cheese plates.
