Hakutsuru "Superior"

$27

 Talk about a gentle and yet elegant sake that is incredibly drinkable. The nose on the brew is a whispered collection of cantaloupe, white grape, sweet rice, raisin, and spring water elements. Clean, smooth with a hint of fruit tones this brew drinks very even with a dry round finish. Look for layers of nuanced flavors such as melon and dried pear all on a gentle flow that feels good in the mouth. A larger glass makes this brew all the more smooth, and the lower alcohol content may appeal to those looking for a lighter sake experience.

Rich flavor

Bottle. Pale straw colour. Bready, aniseed aroma. Dry herbal notes, licorice flavours, quite dry. Full- bodied. Nice and rich.
