Chiyomusubi "Long Life"
Some great sakes drink very much how they smell, and the nose on this brew is a dead give away to what rests inside your glass. With an aroma field that includes creamy caramel, custard and butterscotch look for those flavors in the thick and smooth fluid. A full-bodied sake that has a hint of yellow color, which compliments the chewy and rich characteristics of the sake. For all of the rich and semi-sweet flavors, the sake is well balanced enough that the finish is dry and the smoothness is better expressed with more of a chill on the brew. A great first sip sake that talks to most rich wine drinkers.
