アルプス正宗 特別純米 ひとごこち
Most popular at the tasting! Hitogokochi is a name of the rice from Nagano which is used for luxury sake
The rice polishing ratio is 65% but the one of the koji mold rice is 60% which creates strong taste as well as deep aroma.
Alps MASAMUNE Tokubetsu Junmai HITOGOKOCHI has fruity aroma like pear and slight maple syrup. Smooth and soft. The first flavour is quite smooth but the taste becomes strongly deep and the balanced acidity causes nice lingering flavour in your mouth. Can be paired with food as well as be enjoyed on its own. Try to add a sliced lemon or lime, as it's a great game changer!
