Harushika "Spring Deer"
When was the last time that you smelled watermelon and caramel in the same scent? You will also catch a hint of sweet rice and rose petals. Spring Deer is a terrific example of silky Daiginjo that has tons of flavor in a creamy and velvety package. It is almost like drinking flavored water. There is a light gooeyness that is neither sweet nor dry just round and silky. It is as soft as a sake comes. So quiet yet so boisterous in feel and complexity. Balanced perfectly this is truly clever Daiginjo that explores the veils and nuances of sake.
