Asabiraki Nanburyu "Southern Stream"
This Junmai has a soft nose of grape skins, minerals, and Japanese cedar. “Southern Style” is a very drinkable Junmai for those seeking a deep and rich mushroom and earth tones experience. The first sip is a confident exploration of woody flavors that meet a middle-mouth made up of potato undercurrents. The finish is brisk and filled with a smoky and tingly rich earthiness aftertaste. This is a flavor-packed Junmai that is on the bold side and worth a try to experience a medium-dry sake that speaks to the earthy flavors.

Not sure how to describe what kept this from a 5 rating. The later taste didn't stay as earthy or shroomy as I'd like.
Okay but it’s not my favorite
