Discontinued Ozeki Komatsu Tatewaki "Samurai Sake"
This cedar-aged (less than two weeks) brew has a smoky, grainy, vanilla, charcoal, and cedar nose. A well-balanced taru sake that has several degrees of flavors that are best expressed in different sized glasses. A small cup brings forth more cedar tones on a dry fluid with a quick finish. A larger cup displays a more open cedar flavor with a deep layer of sweetness similar to caramel or noughet with more pronounced acidity and a slightly tangy finish. The brew gets more vast at room temperature highlighting the cedar and acidity play. If you like drinking sake from a masu (cedar box) this brew will speak to you.
