Midori Kawa "Green River"

 The nose on this brew milled to 60% is filled with mango, rice, vanilla, and Jolly Rancher green apple aromas. A very tight and compact sake that drinks crisp and bright. Clean and snappy flavors of rice and dried fruit cascade to a dry finish with a hello-like long tail. This brew is for those who like the tingly flavor of alcohol and appreciate a sake with presence. Martini drinkers take note as Green River tastes like your friend, but only has a 15% alcohol content. Clean, crisp and confident.
