The palate of Hanafubuki Pink Label is very Kidoizumi...much more expressive in the mouth than the nose: a dance party! So pretty, too: Hanafubuki is Lisa Frank as a sake, a pretty, dancing rainbow unicorn.

Notes of Fuji apple, cherry blossom, candycap mushroom, wildflower honey, rainier cherry, cognac, Hawaiian punch (fruit punch!), Italian plum jam. 

Compared to the intense, savory Yamadanishiki Gold Label, Hanafubuki (a table rice) is more delicate, with notes of dried flowers, sandalwood, and brown rice on the nose. 

Pink was absolutely the right color for this one. Well done, Kidoizumi!
