A great example of an aged sake, this one is allowed rest for one and a half years before being bottled. You’ll find the nose to be full of malt and alluring honey, which goes along with the slight gold tint of the sake. On the tongue this sake delivers a bright macadamia nut flavor backed by caramel sweetness with just a touch of astringency. Serving room temperature will give the best effect.
Hanagaki is brewed in Fukui Prefecture in the Hokuriku region.
