Gekkeikan Sake Horin 720ML      
Sku: 1983

A combination of fresh spring water, Yamada Nishiki rice (known as the ‘king of sake rice’), Gohyakumangoku rice milled to 50%, and the skill of the sake master, result in this classic example of a Fushimi style Junmai Daiginjo… Horin has a delicately fruity nose, its subtle flavors are well-balanced, and it is exceptionally smooth with a long clean finish.

Tasting notes
Mild fruity aroma with delicate notes of over-ripe cantaloupe, honeydew and honeysuckle. Round and smooth on the palate, with a medium, creamy body. Finishes long and smooth, with a hint of pear.

Rating
 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 85 points (May 2012)
A fragrant, fruity nose of lychee and Asian pear gives way to sweetly caramelized flavors of baked apple, custard and a hint of brioche. An unctuous, voluptuous sake.

Technical notes
Alc./Volume: 16.6% (720ml) 15.5% (300ml) Class: Junmai Daiginjo Sake Meter Value: +2 Sulfite and gluten free

Food pairing
