Heiwa Shuzo KID "Omachi"
The nose on this limited release masterpiece is a mild collection of raspberry, pear, peach, and citrus aromas. In a word, this is a very special expression of sake made with Omachi sake brewing rice. It’s almost "elegant Omachi" that has impeccable balance and is a great example of the brewing talent at Heiwa Shuzo. Smooth, clean, and a little frisky, there is a mild fruitiness and crispness with a quick dry finish. Look for grapefruit, cherry, strawberry, purple plum, tangerine, grape, and lemon sorbet flavors on a very drinkable flow with an umami echo. There is a lot of control on the fruit, and the balance is outstanding. The structure of this Kid is inspiring, and rarely do I smile when writing a review. I’m smiling and so will you.
