Heavensake Junmai Daiginjo "Urakasumi"
The nose on Heaven's second JDG is a great collection of peach, lemon peel, cantaloupe, apple, apricot, and steamed rice aromas. User friendly is not a bad word, especially when a sake tastes professional but drinks recreationally. This is a very refreshing sake that has layers and layers of flavors on a very balanced and silky flow. Smooth, round, slick take note of the immediate citrus push that might mean why they made the cap orange in packaging. Look for grapefruit, blood orange, young apple, pear, peach, mango, and lemon candy flavors that tingle on a weighty fluid that has a light spritzy feeling with a zesty finish that echoes grapefruit. A super drinkable sake that is fun in feeling and flavor with a dash of smiles.
