We are in October and it becomes a rush to taste all these Hiyaoroshi!
Doi Brewery: Kaiun Junmai Hiyaoroshi
Rice: yamada Nishiki
Rice milled down to: 55% (extravagant!)
Alcohol: 16~17 degrees (genshu)
Clarity: Very clear
Colour: Light golden tinge
Aroma: Discreet. Banana
Taste: Complex. Shortish tail. Fruity and dry. Banana, coffee beans.
Turns drier very quickly, especially with food.
Vanilla and almonds appearing later.
Bitter chocolate appearing later with more food.
Overall: « Shizuoka Type Sake. Multi-faceted.
Well suited for food.
Drinks very quickly. Tends to show a fleeting character.
Extravagant millage at 55%.
Poured a cup inside a « kegani/spider crab » shell with its « miso/brain ». Sublime!
