Harushika sake has a light and smooth flavor. Sharp citrus flavor with crisp bitter finish Harushika is clean and refereshing with slight sweet mid palate with light cinammon aftertaste. This is about as dry as they get and is nonetheless pleasant and finishes grassy and light bodied. It goes well after a big meal. Harushika, or "Spring Deer," takes its name from the deer that roam free in Nara Park. Harushika began by brewing sake for the well-known shrine Kasuga Taisha. Seventy percent of Harushika's brew is junmai and is quite dry indeed. A very subdued nose and clean, smooth flavor combine to give a non-obtrusive flavor profile. Although Harushika is quite pleasant slightly chilled, it goes down smoothly when gently warmed as well.
