Professional Review

"The aroma of this sake has a familiar and nostalgic quality, reminiscent of freshly cooked brown rice. You can taste the full-bodied sweetness that comes from the characteristics of the rice grains, much like mirin, a traditional Japanese condiment. Although the aftertaste is short and concise, the texture of the sake is similar to that of chewing on a mouthful of white rice. We recommend serving chilled sake when pairing it with oily Western-style cuisine, and enjoying it at room temperature or warmed (at a slightly higher temperature) with light and refreshing Japanese dishes."
