Kira "Devil"

 Kira is a honjozo that has a fruity nose filled with peach, pear, and melon tones.  This sake is very dry and this is evident from the first chewy sip that evens out into a thin and almost watery departure from the mouth.  Flavors such as mineral water, walnuts, and pine nuts glide throughout the mouth in a nice and slippery movement, and the finish is a dry sake drinker’s wet dream.
