Tsukasabotan Senchu Hassaku Hiyaoroshi Junmai Genshu
The nose on this seasonally released “draft” sake is a cool collection of strawberry, sugar, peach, veggie, green apple, kiwi, and nutty aromas. If you are a dry sake fan, and you want to enjoy the relaxed and rich nature of Hiyaoroshi sake then this brew is for you! Tight, dry, clean, with a killer quick Kire finish, this brew would appeal to shochu fans who like that compact fluid feeling. This is a laser fast sake that flashes through the palate with a dry finish that has a touch of minerals to it. Look for Asian pear, powdered sugar, nougat, cocoa, white pepper, coffee, and snow melt flavors that are crisp and tight. There is a very cool shimmer of water in each sip that also makes this full-bodied dry brew slippery. WORD: Dry WINE: Dry Reds/Flinty Whites BEER: Mineral Ales FOODS: Izakaya “Pub” cuisines.
