Nishinoseki "Champion of the West"


Description: With a nose of sweet flowers hidden amongst nuts and cream, the first sip of this Junmai is like tasting a sip of buttery popcorn. Don't let the low SMV fool you as this guy drinks more savory than sweet. Probably one of the softest sakes available, despite its deep and expansive flavors. This shimmering Junmai is great chilled and even better warmed up.
One word to describe this sake brew: Buttery
