This well packaged Junmai has wonderfully eclectic nose filled with dried fruit, leaves, earthy elements, peach and chestnuts aromas. Ippin works in mysterious ways in your sake glass, as it a dry sake that drinks tangy and light. Wine folks who like their tannins will take comfort in the stringency “Shibumi” of this semi-thick and ricey brew. Look for dried fruit elements and a hint of cocoa on a flow that produces a very long finish. The sake performs better in a mid-sized glass where it drinks softer and more even. Soft and dry what more could you ask for in a tasty sake?
