A beautiful and singular hiyaoroshi: single-pasteurized, Autumn release, seasonal sake. The level of concentration and density feels like a genshu (undiluted, press strength) although it isn't designated as such. Even at 17% alcohol, it is beautifully balanced and even lighthearted.
I don't recommend heating-- really brings the alcohol out, I feel like it's all I can smell. On the palate there is this lovely apple pie flavor, but unfortunately the alcohol vapors just take over. So stick to chilled or room temp on this one-- delicious either way.
