Muromachi Shuzo Sakura-Muromachi Choki-Jukusei Kome-Shochu "Bizen Hokichi 25" $70.
Clear with a platinum cast. Delicate aromas of spicy rice pudding, nougat, and fig follow through on a soft, silky entry to dry-yet-fruity medium body with powdered sugar, cream, and waxy bubblegum wrapper. Finishes with a long, mineral, mint water and pepper accented fade. Superb.
