The second cheapest of the four metallic bottle sakes found in Family Mart convenience stores at ¥350 ($3.50ish).

The rice is polished down to 70% and it has an alcohol percentage of 14.5%.

It's a clear sake with a light sweet fragrant nose - "Hana yakana kaori" translates as "Cheerful fragrance".

It's a smooth sake, a little sweet and fresh. There's a short aftertaste, and it's very nice and drinkable.

I've written in my notes that it's a little sweet but also dry, it really dries out the mouth.

In fact after a few swigs it became too dry. Tastes good going in but afterwards, really dry. It lost a couple of points because of this.
