Tatenokawa x Foo Fighters Hanasho Blue Junmai Daiginjo Sake
This Junmai Daiginjo sake was created to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Foo Fighters and the release of their 10th album "Medicine At Midnight". This HANSHO Blue was brewed while listening to the music of the Foo Fighters. Inspired by the pop aspects of their sound, it has a gorgeous aroma and a light sweetness. Just sweet enough to drink after a long day and let the flabors wash over and into you. The Hanasho Blue Junmai Daiginjo Sake emerges from the unique collaboration between the esteemed Tatenokawa brewery and the legendary rock band, Foo Fighters. As a parallel expression to the Hanasho Silver, the Blue edition captures a different facet of both the traditional art of sake brewing and the vibrant energy of rock music. A symphony of flavors and emotions, this sake is a true embodiment of craftsmanship, culture, and collaboration. Please enjoy it to the music of the Foo Fighters!!
Nose: The aroma is an enchanting bouquet of fragrant jasmine flowers and fresh green apple, with undertones of tropical fruits like pineapple and a hint of banana. A subtle note of polished rice provides a gentle backdrop to this aromatic panorama.
Palate: On tasting, the Hanasho Blue unravels a silky texture that coats the palate with flavors of crisp Fuji apple, white peach, and a touch of yuzu citrus. A fine umami layer adds depth, complemented by a delicate sweetness that seamlessly balances with its mild acidity.
Finish: The sake concludes with a graceful and prolonged finish, leaving behind the gentle memory of its fruit notes, a whisper of mineral, and the signature softness characteristic of Tatenokawa brews. With the Tatenokawa x Foo Fighters Hanasho Blue Junmai Daiginjo Sake, one is not merely savoring a drink but experiencing a harmonious blend of Japanese tradition and contemporary rock spirit.
