Haginishiki Brewery Junmai Hiyaoroshi : Yesterday, November 25th, as I suddenly had to leave the Cricket match to buy plates and chopsticks we had forgotten to bring for our after-game BBQ, I noticed a bottle of Hiyaoroshi by Haginishiki Brewery, Shizuoka City at the sipermarket. As I did not fancy having to drink cheap beer, I did not hesitate and bought the bottle as I knew very well it would quickly disappear!
Haginishiki Junmai Hiyaoroshi Rice: Biyama Nsihiki 100% Rice milled down to 55% Dryness: +2 Acidity: 1.5
Clarity: Very clear Colour: Light golden tinge Aroma: Fruity/Vanilla, bananas Body: Velvety Taste: Junmai tingle, complex. Lots of fruit: bananas, vanilla, persimmons, bitter chocolate Lingers onpalate, caling for another sip.
Overall: Typical Shizuoka sake. Very fruity. Goes well with any food. Both genders should ind themselves attracted. Complex but tends to accomodate itself to any occasion. A good find!
