Hanahato Kijo Sake Oak Barrel
- アルコール度数：15.5 degrees
Kijoshu is an alcoholic beverage that is brewed using sake instead of water for sake brewing to achieve a richer flavor and sweetness. It is also mentioned in the Engishiki, which was written in the Heian period, and was considered to be a drink reserved for high-ranking aristocrats.
Kijoshu is characterized by its sweetness, but by storing it in oak barrels, the organic acids from the barrels create a flavor with a good balance of astringency, sourness, and sweetness.It is also a liquor with a vanilla and woody aroma that comes from the barrel.

The vanilla-like aroma of vanillin comes from the barrel, creating a sweet atmosphere. It gives a sense of luxury and depth.
It tastes like a dessert. The balance between the sweet taste of honey and the unique acidity that comes from the barrel is very good. When you finish drinking it, the woody scent of vanillin spreads out and is very pleasant.
As it slides down the throat, the finish is good, but the aftertaste is extremely long. Perfect for relaxing and enjoying yourself in a relaxing space.

It has a rich, layered aroma of oak barrels, honey, prunes, and plum blossoms.
It has a concentrated sweet and sour taste, and a pleasant bitterness that goes along with the umami. A high-quality after-dinner drink for adults. Pair with cheese etc.

The sweetness of Hanahito and the firm impression of grain vinegar on the top, followed by the soft caramel aroma of the oak barrels, adding thickness and height to the whole, giving it a sense of depth and three-dimensionality.
If you pair it with ice cream filled with macadamia nuts, it will melt together.
