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.
"This sake has a warm and gentle aroma reminiscent of brown rice or sticky rice cake, which highlights the rice polishing ratio and the characteristics of the rice used. When heated, a pleasant and smooth sweetness is more noticeable. The taste can be enjoyed with all five senses and has an excellent overall balance. It is also recommended as a sake to pair with meals. Heating the sake brings out an overwhelming sharpness and a moderate aftertaste. Although it is recommended to drink at room temperature, it can also be enjoyed as cold sake or warm sake."
