Hakushika Hana Kohaku Plum SakePosted in : Sake on by : The Gourmez
Hakushika Hana Kohaku Plum Sake
Class: Junmai Ginjo
This sake has added nanko plum extract, which is what makes it such a strongly amber color – in the bottle, it looked more rose pink! It smells like a blend of sake and plum wine with plum and warm rice being the primary notes. There’s salt for accent.
I like it. It’s completely straightforward as a blend of sake and plum wine, kind of a best of both worlds for favored Japanese beverages, excepting whiskey. I really didn’t think it would work, and, um, I really don’t think it would work with whiskey, too. Let’s keep it a duo, okay, inventive beverage makers? Don’t get any ideas from this blog.
The Hakushika Hana Kohaku Plum Sake is a smooth, sweet drink providing a pleasant end to the evening. Ultimately, though, I’d like a little more panache.
