"Soft, well-rounded with a refreshing aftertaste."


"Nagaoka No Hoshi" has a soft, well-rounded mouthfeel and a refreshing aftertaste with a moderate dryness while retaining a hint of the rice's flavour. There is just the right amount of bitterness present to offset the rice's subtle aroma and umami. 

On the palate, a subtle nutty flavour lingers throughout, leaving an unforgettable impression.
