Occasionally a brewer approaches us with a brew that resets our grading scale--this is one of them. If you are looking for a premium sake to impress, your list should start with this godly brew. Let's start with the fragrance--think melon and pear with an undertone of bamboo and a dash of white pepper. Now the taste - those fragrants mixed with marshmallows. Can you picture it? Mmmmmm...cloudy marshmallows and pears. Adjectives include: rich, elegant, layered (deep and complex), sweet, a bit dry--all ending with a quick finish. And, did you see the bottle? So cool...the presentation blows away any bottle of wine...
