Otokoyama SE18 " Hiyaoroshi Tokubetsu Junmai Kimoto Namazume"

The nose on this seasonal single pasteurized sake called Hiyaoroshi that was made using the Kimoto brewing technique has a great nose filled with cinnamon, crushed leaves, toasted rice, caramel, and fresh rain aromas. If you like your sakes on the dry side then this fall draft is for you. Thin, rich, and dry it is a very well balanced brew that drinks like a Totem Pole of flavors but ends with a nice salty dryness. This classifies as a “drinkable” sake that demands a second glass. Look for salted caramel, toasted rice, breakfast cereal, dried coconut, and mineral flavors that are like faces going up and down on the Totem Pole. It is rich but drinks light, and that's pretty cool. WORD: Dry WINE: Dry Reds/Flinty Whites BEER: Dry Ales FOODS: Grilled everything, foods on a stick, salty fish and savory chicken. (2019)

The nose on this seasonally released fall draft sake is a combination of single pasteurization and the “Kimoto” or traditional polerammed style and has a fascinating bouquet of woody, creamy, ricey, and apple cider aromas. What’s not to love about harbor seals drinking wonderful fall sake with amazingly lovely leaves falling about? One of our favorite Hiyaoroshi labels on one of our favorite seasonal sake. This year’s version is clean, tight, and dry with roasted flavors of cooked fruit, toast, cinnamon, pasta, cocoa and a touch of young pear. Smoot, round, and soft it drinks very fast through the palate and as the fluid warms look for a hint of roasted vanilla. It drinks zesty and fun, and the overall impression is its dryness that the end of the sip. There is more body as the fluid warms. WORD: Dry WINE: Dry Reds/Crisp Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Good for Autumn salty and savory cuisines. (2018)
