Kuroushi's "Black Bull" is rich and ricey, with a soft earthiness, and a touch of leather. It's a full-bodied, dry sake made to show off the best qualities of the Omachi rice varietal—the oldest pure strain of sake rice, discovered in 1859. The result is a rich, layered, nuanced, soft yet sturdy sake suitable for pairing with nearly any cuisine but enjoyed best with beef. With an aroma of white muscat grapes and citrus fruits, its soft acidic taste flows down the palate very smoothly. It has a very elegant, long finish.
Sake Social, in partnership with JETRO [Japanese External Trade Organziation], is deeply committed to the continued promotion of Japanese sake, shochu, and related goods. Through education and shared knowledge, we encourage novice and expert consumers to try, enjoy, and share Japanese sake and shochu.

Got a bottle of this for a friend's birthday. She loved it, as did her husband who prefers dry saké like this. Rave reviews all around the table. Kanpai!
