KEN "Sword"

 The nose is filled with strawberry, banana, cantaloupe, and watermelon. A clean and bold Daiginjo with a snap that says, “I am a sword.” A perfect example of a sake that becomes “you” each and every sip with hints of minerals, ginger, melon and a dryness that speaks to all. There is an abundance of crisp flavors that makes this sake a favorite of those who like a clean and balanced Daiginjo with attitude. More fruit tones come out closer to room temp.
