Hiraizumi "Splashing Spring Water"
Description: The nose on this traditionally made sake is packed with fragrances such as cream, nuts, cocoa, and cooked bananas. This is a gentle giant of a sake with loads of flavor in a viscous movement of fluid. Take your pick: minerals, almonds, dark chocolate, and cream sherry all come to the front and the stop-gap finish is dry and gone! This is a soft-spoken sake that is flavor wrapped in pure pleasure. Chewy and beautiful, expect the unexpected - big flavor soft package.
