Hiyaoroshi Sake season is here!
I love Kisoji's Hiyaoroshi for being one of the bigger, bolder offerings each year. Also the iridescent label is gorgeous, and one of my all-time favorite sake bottle labels. Aromatically, it is quite fruity and fragrant, with layers of savory custardy notes leaping from the glass. The mouthfeel is rich and silky. Fruit notes of pear and grape come to the forefront and are quickly followed up by savory, mushroomy notes.
Serve this one with roast chicken, roast pork, roast mushrooms, meatloaf, Chinese stir-fry, or ramen.
Hiyaoroshi are limited, special Fall-released sake which are special lots set aside each spring when brewing wraps up, and aged over the summer. These seasonal sake are pasteurized just once, before aging. These bottlings are specially crafted to go with autumn cuisine, and show a unique balance of fruit, savory, nutty, and have a certain richness to them. They are a great way to warm up to the incoming cold weather!
