Tasting Notes

"Fukano's 2017 release is delicate and elegant, with the distinctive character of the rice distillate shining through the light barrel influence. With sake on the nose and a palate of toasted rice, jasmine flowers, and a hint of vanilla, it's unlike much else on the market. Its light body and refined flavors make it ideal for enjoying neat."
