We continue the 300ml bottles with Hana no Mai Brewery (Hamakita/Hamamatsu City)this time
This Karakｋaze was brewed on December 11th, 2006.
The rice was milled down to 55%. If Hana no mai does not advertize the kind of sake, one can automatically assume it is honjozo or yokubetsu honjozo. The 55% would indicate the latter.
Clarity: very clear
Colour: almost transparent
Aroma: ricey, light
Taste: Banana, Vanilla, Almonds
Little tingle with liquoruce and bitter chocolate faintly appearing later
Overall: typical of Hana no Mai Brewery.
Light, easy to drink, ideal for beginners and young ladies.
