Professional Review

"The fragrance of this sake is reminiscent of green bamboo leaves on the banks of a remote clear stream, with a clear and refreshing scent that leaves a strong impression. The taste is quite different from the initial impression given by the fragrance, as it is deeply aged, with a light and easy-to-drink quality during meals. Upon exposure to air, this sake produces a strong, lingering finish similar to fortified wines such as Marsala from Italy or Banyuls from France. We recommend taking the sake out of the refrigerator and letting it sit for a short while before enjoying it in small amounts with a traditional Japanese sake cup (ochoko) at a temperature of about 10 degrees Celsius."

Pairing Suggestion: Oden (especially konnyaku), pot-au-feu filled with vegetables, Karasumi Daikon (Japanese radish), Peperoncino spaghetti with seafood, Melon
