An indicator of the sweetness or dryness of sake. Generally, a negative value indicates sweetness, while a positive value indicates dryness.
A numerical expression of the total amount of acidity. A high acid level indicates sharpness and richness, while a low indicates lightness and sweetness.
The ratio of rice remaining after scraping from the outside. By shaving off the surface layer, sake can be made with a distinctive aroma and free of impurities.
"The aroma is gentle, with a mild and refreshing scent of rice that has been stored in a wooden box. The fresh flavor is just like being in a bamboo grove where wild vegetables are starting to appear. It starts with a tartness, then passes through the middle with the wind blowing through the umami and sweetness. It is strongly recommended to serve it chilled to avoid hiding its distinctive character."
