An aroma that would put roses to shame

They say you should always stop and smell the roses, but really you should stop and smell Kaori. It’s beautiful, flowery aroma can put any mind at ease. Backed up by a slightly sweet, fruitiness, hints of cucumber, and a satisfying finish, you can’t go wrong with this sake. Next time your life is getting too hectic, buy a bottle of Kaori, step back, and relax.
