The nose on this Yamahai is mild collection of cream, nougat, rice candy, and steamed rice aromas. Smooth, light, with a nice body and a gentle acidity. This new Kiminoi is rich but not heavy, and superbly balanced. It is an elegant brew that celebrates the flavor of Gohyakumangoku brewing rice that is now milled to 55%. Look for hints of roasted rice, caramel, nougat, and rice pudding flavors that move along on a smooth and evenly balanced flow.
