This is a connoisseur’s junmai sake, dry, sharp and smooth all in one. Its mild astringency, characteristic of sakes made using the old yamahai method, is balanced by a faintly discernible sweetness.
This connoisseur’s junmai can be enjoyed cold but is best warmed or served at room temperature. Spice-friendly, it pairs well with savory dishes from Middle-Eastern cuisines.
